Welcome to Portobello Running Club

Portobello Running Club is an adult running club with enrolment from age 18 located in the east of Edinburgh where the city meets the Firth of Forth in the old seaside resort of Portobello. We train every Wednesday night come rain or shine because our training sessions are run by our very enthusiastic coaches Team Porty.

In the winter much of our training takes place along the Promenade of Portobello but from April to September you can find us enjoying our summer training in and around Holyrood Park and Arthur’s Seat.

Wanting to give Portobello Running Club a try then head over to our new members tab for more information then check out the training details to see whats coming up then feel free to come say hello.

Be sure to keep an eye on our News page for any new announcements including the launch of our very own Portobello Running Club Beach race entry
