Cosa farete

We start at one of our favourite spots in Edinburgh, the iconic Ross Fountain in Princes' Street Gardens, with the most amazing views of the Castle. We'll tell a few exciting stories from the castle's history, before we go for our warm-up around the beautiful gardens. We'll then have a wee stretch before we set off for our run around the city.

We've picked a route which shows off the most beautiful secret spots of Edinburgh. You'll hear some fantastic stories from history that we love, but not too many folk know about...

You'll discover why there's a bear in Princes' Street Gardens (not a real one, don't worry), you'll hear stories that inspired Hollywood films, you'll learn about Robert Louis Stevenson and the story behind Jekyll & Hyde, you'll hear tales of Scots adventuring in the New World, 19th century fraudsters and scandals that rocked the city, and we might even have time for some cannibalism (apologies to the vegetarians). The route is 10k, but we'll be stopping plenty for a little chat and to take pictures (you'll want to, believe me).

At the end, we'll be heading to a great Scottish pub for a blether (chat, in English) and a drink... We find running is thirsty work!
Other things to note
This is a running tour covering 10km. The route is moderately challenging with a few hills. We'll go at a leisurely pace; there will be stops en route, but a reasonable fitness level is required.

Hello! We're Calum & Euan, two brothers who were born and raised here in Edinburgh and we are very passionate about our city! We're both keen runners as well, whether it's a 10k, half marathon or adventure race. We decided to combine our passions to create the Edinburgh Running Tour!

Having been raised in the city, we know Edinburgh like the back of our hands - all the best spots to explore, or go for a drink and a bite to eat. Together, we have over 5 years experience in tour guiding, and know all the best stories from Edinburgh's history!

But the thing we love most about guiding is getting to meet people from all over the world, creating genuine connections and having a good laugh. So, make sure you pack your short shorts and sweatbands (please don't), and join us for a run to remember around one of the best cities in the world

Really enjoyed the 10k experience and connected with Euan. We’ve had to reschedule our run due to the rain, and Euan gladly rebooked us for the next day. Very accommodating. He also had interesting stories to tell and history to share. A must-try when you’re in Edinburgh.

I would thoroughly recommend this tour. Euan was an excellent host and took us to parts of Edinburgh that we never would have found on our own. He was personable, friendly and knowledgeable. Combining a city tour with a 10km run is something I’d never done before, but turned out to be a great way to see the city. We ran at a nice pace, which wasn’t overly challenging and allowed us to enjoy ourselves. Euan took safety very seriously and was diligent in crossing roads and following Covid 19 guidelines. 100% positive experience.

A fantastic tour of Edinburgh with some fascinating stories about the places where we stopped. Calum was a great host and he had a real passion for running/sport which I really connected with. If you enjoy running and want to see the sites of Edinburgh, this is a perfect way to do it. I highly recommend it.

Il faut le vivre, tout simplement. J’ai redécouvert Edimbourg en prenant des petits sentiers inconnus, que l’on emprunte pas lorsque l’on voyage seul.
