Urban Sprint course has been set by Robin Strain. It visits the old town centre and areas of newer housing with some open running in between. The map should be considered as a work-in-progress. It is generally very accurate but trees are not marked where they do not affect runnability. Some gates are locked at 19:00 – these are treated as uncrossable whether you reach them before 19:00 or not!

Because the Urban Sprint involves road crossings, under 16s can only tackle this course if accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.

Our final event in the summer SprintELOpe series will be in two weeks (Wed 22nd June) at Musselburgh based at Lewisvale Park. There are other Wednesday evening events in the Edinburgh area – please see the websites of the other clubs for more details Interlopers, ESOC and Roxburgh Reivers).
