EMF Running tour - Burns Night
Feel the Burns Night!
“Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat and we can eat,
And sae the Lord be thankit.”

And why not add a wee run in beforehand? 

On the 25th of January, why not join us on a running tour to find out a bit more about the bards’ influence on and exploits in our fair city. 

We’ll be jogging for around 90 minutes, with frequent stops for stories, taking in the hidden sights that the city has to offer, and learning about the famous bard, his contemporaries, and other intriguing characters from the worlds’ first UNESCO City of Literature.

New Year, New You, New Motivation
Aah, New Year. The time when we all decide that “THIS year, is the year that I’m going to…[detox, go hangliding, ride a bike, START RUNNING]” with our new years resolutions!

Well, why not let us help? I know that a lot of us decide that running is on the list, from personal experience as well, and how hard it can be to keep that motivation going. 

If you need a kick start, or an extra boost to get you outside during the dreich winter months, we can definitely help you. Our award winning guides are all also trained JogScotland leaders, accustomed to taking groups of all levels. We’ve taken everyone from olympians to first time joggers, and with frequent breaks for stories, the time will race by πŸ˜‰

Come join us in 2018, just head to the Book a Tour page and find a time which suits you!

I would run 500 miles, and I would run 500 more – 2017 Round Up
In the EMF Running Tour’s debut year, I accidently ran a marathon (if you missed it, the story is here), and this year, I’ve smashed another milestone!

1000 miles.

Yep. For someone who never intended to be a long distance runner. Now, I didn’t do this all in one go (I like having knees), but looking at the number of bookings we’ve had over the past 12 month, and doing the maths on the average tour length, I figured out that I must have run over 900 miles this year.

So I checked, and according to my old Garmin 210, I actually ran 1000 miles this year *just on tours*! Thank you to everyone who’s forced me out of bed to take the 7am tour, to those who have shared a whisky with me during the Winter Warmer, to the Trainspotting nuts and the film buffs, you’ve all been great fun and I had a blast running every single one of those 1000 miles πŸ˜‰

It’s been a tremendous year for the team here at EMF Running Tours, we were granted the highest accolade possible by the Visit Scotland (blog post here here), and we were joined by hundreds of runners from all over the world, from as far away as New Zealand, to as close as my upstairs neighbour! 

Really looking forward to what 2018 has to offer. We have many plans about to get underway, so stay tuned to see what happens next πŸ˜‰
