|Join in the fortnightly women’s runs round Edinburgh and the surrounding countryside. Most is off-road, away from the traffic. Meet on alternate Mondays (venues below) for a social run of about an hour. In the lighter evenings, after the clocks move forward, we usually leave the trails of Edinburgh and head for the surrounding countryside. Sometimes it’s useful to have a head torch on the ‘winter’ dates.|
There is now a ladies’ run WhatsApp group. Any ladies who want to be on the group contact Joanne with their mobile no. and download the app to their phone (a WhatsApp group is very like a Facebook private group but you don’t need to be on Facebook).
All enquiries please contact Joanne Thin or on 07527187619
|Meet 6.45 pm ready to run at the venue (or hostess’s house) as listed below.If you do not know where that is, please contact Joanne Thin, above. On winter runs, soup or other sustenance will be provided if running from a house.|
|Ladies’ Runs 2017|
Now the brighter nights will be so we will move to our summer run venues. Sadly this means no soup but it does mean we get to visit lots of lovely places to run. Meet at 6.45 pm dressed for the weather.

Hope we have fun!
|Thanks to volunteers for hosting runs. Ladies run volunteers please if your plans change and you cannot host at the time can you aim to try and find someone else as substitute host and e-mail the new venue to the ladies in good time (cc me of course and contact me if any problem).|
Ladies there is now a ladies whatsapp – if you download the app on your smartphone and ensure I have your mobile you can use this to check who is coming on a run.
Looking forward to some interesting summer outings.
Bill Gauld is an honorary lady for our Monday sojourns. He celebrated his 81st recently. In appreciation of the yummy cake and the camaraderie on Ladies night, he penned this thank you –
To all you girls with smiling eyes,
Who once a fortnight cheer me,
I wish that I was half my age,
And you were always near me.
