RCD 5k Series 2016

Following the success of last year’s 5k series, our clubbers are again being given the opportunity to take on each of the 4 runs.  Clubbers may choose to set their own goals in achieving PBs or simply enjoy the runs just for fun!!

Medals will be awarded to all Clubbers who take part in the 5k series later in the year at RCD’s presentation night (date TBC).

Arthur Seat – RCD 5k – Sunday 21st August 2016





Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2016

Many of our clubbers will be pulling on their running gear and lacing up their running shoes ready to take on the challenge of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2016…..For some of them this will be the first time they have taken part in such a big event!

We currently have 3 ‘Hairy Haggis’ relay teams, 2 half marathon runners and 4 full marathon runners.

All clubbers taking part will be raising funds for our nominated charity, details of which can be found on our Fundraising page.

We have every confidence that all our clubbers will do fantastic and we wish them all the best of luck.
