the 7th annual LP run
Like running? Like good tunes? Like eating cake?
If you said yes to any of these, then the good news is the ERN LP RUN is back for our 7th year! At 11am on Sunday 21st August at Meadowbank Stadium and this year in aid of Its Good 2 Give, a charity supporting local young people with cancer and their families. The theme for this year's race is "High School": the summer holidays are over, the kids are back at school, so come along and enjoy the experience of running on a track, no matter how fast or slow you are!
The run is based on the oldest race in Houston, Texas now in its 49th year. For the ipod generation here is a short explanation. On the crack of the starting pistol you run as many Revolutions Per Minute (laps) of the track as you can during 33 and a third minutes, all the while listening to top tunes. Entrants are responsible for counting their own laps but bands will be given out for each lap completed and there will be independent verification of the front runners and prizes for the top male and female finishers, as well as spot prizes.
You also have the option to choose a tune you'd like to hear played as you're running, and to tie in with the High School theme, we're asking you to pick a tune that reminds you of your school days!
After the race is done and dusted, arguably the best bit - tea, coffee and cake! Edinburgh Running Network members love their cake, and we have a lot of great bakers, so join in and bring along a cake - there will be a mystery prize for the best cake, but all cakes and traybakes will be welcome, it doesn't have to be perfect, just tasty!
ERN is one of the friendliest running clubs in Scotland and we welcome runners of all abilities. Come along and find out just how much we love to run, and eat cake.
2016 LP run T-shirts are available to pre-order with your entry - this year the colour is magenta.
