The 10K club
Ready to increase your distance?
Our 10km club is about building on the foundations of your 5km and training to run 10K with confidence.
We’ll show you how to go a little further with confidence and start to play around with the streets and routes that Edinburgh has to offer. Our groups are also about supporting each other through the sessions and creating a network of other runners you can get outside with.
What you get
This course isn’t about PB’s, it’s about confidently getting you to run the 10K distance with others on the streets of Edinburgh. Starting with a gentle 5km in week 1, we’ll gradually increase the distance as well as introduce running up (and down!) hills, speed play and understanding different types of running paces.
Structured session every Tuesday
Lead and supported by Scottish Athletics Run Leaders, these sessions will help you build up distance, stamina and confidence.
A 10km training guide
You’ll get a guide explaining what else you need to do between the sessions to train for the 10km.
Support getting ready for your event
Kit questions, race day queries, or a pre-race day pep talk, any support you need to get prepared for the race, we can help.
Warm up and cool downs
Learn warm-up and cool-down exercise guides.
This is where you can ask questions and arrange additional runs with other members of the course.

Your questions, answered
Leith Street x Little King Street (outside St Mary’s Cathedral).
No you don’t. Our Run Leaders will guide you through the course including any periods of time where you run and walk.
However, if you do want to track your progress, download Strava onto your phone and we can help you get set up.
We will only re-arrange Tuesday sessions if it is unsafe to run (for example, very high winds, or when it is very icy). If the weather turns out to be slightly…Scottish… we still run. Your Run Leader will amend routes if necessary, but we don’t let a little bad weather get in the way of running with each other and reaching our goals.
Paid parking is available in St James Quarter and Q-Park at Omni. Street parking is available at various areas such as Albany Street, Forth Street and Blenheim Place. Usually, parking will be free from 18:30, but please check in advance if you plan to drive.
[Words by Kirstie MacLennan] I started my WRE journey with the 0 to 5km group, a bit apprehensive and nervous but, because of WRE, I am now a marathon runner! […]
