WHEN AND WHERE DO YOU RUN?
We meet every Sunday at 6:30pm at The Golf Tavern. We have a spot reserved immediately inside, so you should see us in our obnoxiously bright PubRun tops as soon as you walk in. We then do a gentle 5k around The Meadows together, returning back to the Golf Tavern for a pint and a chat.
We also have a Tuesday night run launching in Leith in January 2020. Details coming soon.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Your first session is completely free of charge. Then, you have the option to become a member for £25 per year.
Membership gives you access to unlimited PubRuns and any location and our very active social calendar, including weekend retreats, bowling, quiz nights, karaoke, ceilidhs and sports days.
We are about people, not profit, so the fees are used to invest back into the club. It covers our running costs and helps us deliver on our purpose. Also, 20% of all profits will be donated to the PubRun Fund annually (and as a member, you get to vote on how it's spent).
I CAN'T RUN VERY FAR OR FAST. AM I GONNA STRUGGLE?
This is not a competitive running group. The most important part is making it back to the pub afterwards for a chat, no matter how you get there.
We have a range of abilities but there's plenty of people that run at an easy pace. Regardless, we'll make sure no one if left on their own.
You also have the option to do just one loop of The Meadows or Leith Links if you don't fancy the full 5k.
WHAT'S THE PUBRUN FUND?
It's a fund set up to give back to the local community, with a focus on connecting people, reducing loneliness and supporting mental health. As a member, you get to vote annually on how this fund should be spent.
I DON'T KNOW ANYONE. WILL I FEEL LEFT OUT?
We work hard to make sure PubRun is a welcoming environment and doesn't feel in any way cliquey. Pretty much everyone arrives on their own and we have new people joining every week. We'll work hard to make sure you have a great time and come away feeling like you've made some new pals.
HOW CAN I GET MY HANDS ON ONE OF THOSE PUBRUN TOPS?
We sell tops at every PubRun session, or you can pre-order online. They're £18 each and you can pay by PayPal, cash or bank transfer.
WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS TERRIBLE?
We aim to run in all weather. It'd have to be pretty extreme for us to call off a run. Worst case scenario, you can still hang out in the pub in our running gear.
HOW CAN I STAY IN THE LOOP ABOUT SOCIALS?
Once you're a member, we will regularly email and/or text you our newsletter so you'll have first dibs on any upcoming socials. You always have the option to unsubscribe if you'd prefer not to receive these emails and/or texts.
