The senior’s club is made up of men and women of all ages and a broad cross-section of abilities, but with one thing in common – they all enjoy running in a relaxed, friendly environment. You won't be left behind by any group either with our ethos of first person run to the back if you're getting ahead!
Tuesday Training – with groups of runners setting off from Fisherrow Yacht Club at 7pm for gentle runs, rep sessions or longer runs of 5 miles and more. Changing facilities are available in the yacht club.
Wednesday evenings are when our JogScotland group meet. Meeting at Musselburgh Sports Centre at 6.45 for a walk run or a 3-4 mile gentle jog.
Saturday training is more advanced at Pinkie Primary School. This will be a rep session / cross country training.
Other training runs are organised by members through our members facebook page. These will vary but mostly on Sundays and are usually longer runs and quite often there are groups heading for the hills with the Pentlands and the Lammermuirs being the favourites.

We are a community club run by volunteers. We have an excellent committee, who cover a wide variety of subjects, and sub-committees dealing with specific areas like organising races or developing areas of the club, and a coaching network which continues to grow as the club does. A lot of that is key to our success. One thing we do ask of members is to help out where you can. There is always opportunities to join our committees and the one day we always need as much help as possible is to make our popular Festival race as successful as possible. We receive great feedback on our organisation and support provided to runners by our marshals.
For runners interested in competing in races we take part in local competitions alongside other running clubs and also travel further a field to take part in races.
