Giraffe Trail – July / Aug 2022
ERNies are loving the Giraffe Trial that has arrived in Edinburgh this summer and we’ve been able to incorporate most of them into Sunday and Tuesday run routes around the city!
ERN your ice cream!
If there’s one thing ERNies love as much as running it’s ice cream (and cake, and beer…..) so if you’re heading out on a Monday or Tuesday run and the sun is out, bring some pocket money as there’s a high likelihood of an ice cream stop on the way back!
Saturday is parkrun day and whilst we love supporting our local events at Edinburgh, Oriam, Portobello and Vogrie we also love a bit of parkrun tourism either close to home or while on holiday (rumour has it some people even plan their holidays around parkruns!). Recent trips have taken ERNies as far a field as Amsterdam; Itchen Valley near Southampton; Keswick; Ruchill (Glasgow), Drumpelier ; Leazes (Newcastle); Crichton (Dumfries); Ury Riverside (Inverurie) and Kirkcaldy. We particularly enjoy sampling the post-parkrun cafes!
On 16th July 2022 Edinburgh welcomed a new parkrun at Holyrood park and a special thanks to the ERNies who’ve helped to set this up and volunteered at the first events!
