Guided Running In Edinburgh
For guests who may have brought their running shoes but are unsure where to go for the best routes, or how far to go to make a target distance, we have teamed up with a qualified triathlon coach, Al Donald from Aldon Coaching, who has an extensive knowledge of running routes within Edinburgh.
Morning, noon or night Al will be happy to take you out to get your daily fix of exercise or keep up that training regime – and what better way to see Edinburgh!
Al can meet you at the hotel & take you on a run of your chosen distance across a variety of routes, including an off road element or he can pick you up at the hotel, take you to another location for a run & drop you off again afterwards. He will supply you with a towel to use & also bottled water.
Should you decide to take the second option and be driven to another location, Al could take you on a scenic 5km starting from Holyrood House, the Queen’s summer palace, and up around Arthur’s Seat, where you get fantastic views of historic Edinburgh. He could also take you down to the coast for a nice, flat run next to the Firth of Forth.
Alternatively he could take you off road at a number of sites, or plan a bespoke route of your choice - routes can be up to 15km in length & at a pace to suit you.
Prices start from £20 for a route from the hotel and £25 for a pick up and drop route.
