Where and when can I Blast Run?

We meet up at Gypsy Brae Recreation Ground, EH5 1QD, for our monthly 5km and 10km races.

There is plenty of free parking, or cycle down to us and we’ll watch your bike whilst you race!

We also have a weekly TUESDAY 5km Blast at The Meadows at 12.45pm.


Your Race. Your Pace.

All our races are chip timed however our spirit is that we are here to support your personal racing goals. Whether you are trying to break 20 minutes or 40 minutes for your 5km the clock only starts timing you when you cross the start line.… can you sneak under your PB?

Social Conscience

From the very first runner across the start line on 29th September 2019 we have been supporting a local children’s mental health charity in the Lothians called Play Therapy Base. Play Therapy Base is a registered charity whose aim is to provide children aged 3 to 14 years with a child-centred therapeutic resource close to their local communities in Midlothian, East Lothian and Edinburgh.

We have also supported The MS Society Scotland, Fresh Start and Cramond Playgroup.

Since 2019 we have raised over £8000 (updated Sept ‘21) and thank you ALL for your help in raising this much needed money!
