The Pentland Taster Running Tour

The Pentland Taster Running Tour

We have had a cracking 2018, a big thank you to everyone who joined us and for all the lovely messages and reviews.

As we prepare to wave goodbye to 2018, we are super excited to have lots of plans for 2019. I appreciate it can get a little confusing as to what running tours we have and when, so this short blog will outline all our tours over the next few months.

Ooooooooo and did you know that all of our running tours are available as gift vouchers? You can either book a specific date for a gift voucher or have the date open. Experience gifts truly are the most thoughtful. We don’t think there is anything better than creating new memories with friends and loved ones and having the best fun on the run ever.

As usual all our running tours can be booked for a time and date to suit yourself. Perhaps you are visiting Edinburgh either by yourself or with a friend or partner and want to get a run in and see the sights - get in touch and we would be happy to arrange a private running tour for you.

We also have a number of special Group Running Tours all organised and ready for bookings, this includes the Craft Beer Running Tour, Prosecco Running Tour, Pentland Taster Running Tour and The Edinburgh Nutshell. Read on to find out when these are and how to book.

Craft Beer Running Tour

Craft Beer Running Tour

January sees the return of our Craft Beer Running Tours, these are currently at 3pm on 6th, 13th and 27th January and 28th April.

This running tour is just £22 per person, and consists of a magical, sociable, fun and cultural 4.5-mile running tour around Edinburgh, with lots of stops for information and photo opportunities. It finishes off with craft beer sampling and then settling down with a beer back at BrewDog, Lothian Road (yes beer sampling and a beer is included).

February brings us our famous Prosecco Running Tours, these are also approximately 4.5 miles long, and are currently at 3pm on 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th February - and the 7th April.

Like the Craft Beer Running Tour, they are set at a steady and sociable pace and with our little secret twist added in, they really are super fun. Basking in the afterglow of the run with a glass of prosecco in hand, and chatting and giggling with our new running friends, is definitely the highlight of this running tour, and gives you that warm fuzzy feeling.

Now, here is one of our best kept secrets! The Pentland Hills are so close to Edinburgh, yet so many locals have never even visited them -GASP!

Our special 6 mile running tour in the Pentland Hills, is spectacular.  Whilst we are not bombarded with architecture and places of interest we can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the hills and actually there is still a lot to learn from our surroundings. We can’t wait to tell you all about St Katherine’s-in-the-Hopes; the ancient chapel that lies beneath Glencorse Reservoir.

We have put aside 3 specific dates for a special ‘running’ of the Pentland Taster, which is at the discounted price of £22 per person, which includes a hot drink at the end. So grab your friends and join us on 16th February, 16th March or 23rd March. All of these running tours start at 10am from Flotterstone car park.
