Due to COVID-19, our athletics programmes have been cancelled until further notice. If you have a direct debit with us, then this will have been frozen until we reopen. You do not need to do anything. Please check our website for reopening details and stay active at home with our custom-made drills, strength routines and much more, so you’re ready to hit the ground running when we reopen.

If you want to sprint 100 metres, run a 5k or train for a marathon, our outdoor and indoor tracks can prep you for a race, or simply use it to improve your technique or stamina.

Our staff can offer you advice on training, either in the gym or on the track, and if you want to take this sport to competition level then we have associations with athletic clubs.

Meadowbank Sports Centre

Run off steam on the outdoor 400 metre eight lane track - don't let the weather stop you with our indoor option.

(Currently closed until 2020 for redevelopment)

Saughton Sports Complex

Clock up a distance or sprint like a superstar at our outdoor athletics track.


Our Junior Athletics coaching can develop balance, coordination and confidence as well as fitness.

If you prefer pavement pounding, benefit from the support and camaraderie of a group by joining a regular session. 

Jogscotland has groups around Edinburgh suitable for beginners and more experienced runners with several leaving from or near to our venues. These are a great way to boost fitness, motivation, times and stamina - and you certainly don’t have to be Mo Farah to join up. 

Jog Leaders are specially trained to help you reach your fitness goals while feeling safe, supported - and sociable. They will take you through a variety of structured runs so you get used to all the different types of jog training you need to be active and healthy.
