Edinburgh Parkrun is finally heading to Oriam!!! For those of you that are not aware of the initiative it’s a free, weekly, timed 5km run that happens at 09.30 on a Saturday morning across the world.

We have a lovely route mapped out on campus leaving from and returning to Oriam so there will be access to free parking, the bistro and toilet facilities.  To make this a success we need volunteers that are willing to give up their time to ensure that all runners are safe and receive a time for their run.

If you would like to help us, either occasionally or on a more regular basis please attend a meeting on Tuesday 13th August at 7pm in the Chapman Suite, Oriam.  For more information please contact Sarah Robertson at sarah.robertson@hw.ac.uk
