Portobello Running Club Training

Throughout the year we train from two different locations, In the winter much of our training takes place along the Promenade in Portobello and around in well lit areas. From April to September you can find us enjoying our summer training in and around Holyrood Park, Arthur’s Seat and surrounding areas.

We have three three different sessions on offer each week seen via the Calendar from our dedicated coaches so you are free to pick whichever session suits you and our team will make you feel welcome and involved.

Many of our runners meet up on a Sunday morning for longer easy paced runs at varying locations across the city, keep an eye on the closed Facebook group (request access) and also check out future sessions via the Calendar.


Duddingston Playing Fields (Cavalry Park) – Edinburgh

We are moving to the open fields down at Cavalry Park.


Parking is free but the car park but is limited although there is an “overflow” to the right as you approach. A plea from the team to either run, walk, cycle or car share where possible please but also do be mindful of where you park if you have to drive


Try and come ready to run as there are no changing facilities down at the fields.


Community Garden – Portobello Prom

Portobello RC gather in front of Portobello Community Garden along Portobello Promenade. Most sessions are held on the Prom or nearby in well lit, light traffic areas however, please try and ensure you wear some hi-viz kit – See and Be Seen!


There should be plenty of parking in and around the streets but also the car park at Edinburgh Leisure Tumbles is just a short jog along the prom where there is also sufficient places to padlock bikes.
