The Runny EGG 10K

In Event Management Scotland by LeeLeave a Comment

We teamed up with Edinburgh Gossip Girls (EGG) last Sunday (1st October 2017) to host their exclusive ‘Runny Egg 10K’. The bespoke event was crafted to support the EGG women in achieving their health and fitness goals. The bright-eyed and bushy-tailed EGGs gathered at Archerfield Estate in beautiful East Lothian ready for a 10:30am start. The scenic route started at Archerfield Walled Garden and followed a mix of paths, trails and a little tarmac before reaching Yellow Craigs beach. Although the coastline view was stunning, the sandy stretch was tough on the legs. The unique route then reared back towards the estate, where the ladies were met by another challenging stretch of long grass, before crossing the finish line back at the walled garden. The first EGG, Jane Harrington, completed the route in 50 minutes and 2 seconds, with all others following shortly behind.

We’ve been working with the EGG community throughout their 10K training period, holding regular PT sessions at Holyrood Park as well as providing take home training plans. We’ve seen some girls go from zero to hero, whilst others have pushed for a new personal best. Some very impressive progressions. The level of family support at the event was awesome, with lots of proud husbands, kids and families there to cheer the ladies on at the finish line.

A big thanks to Archerfield, EGG, and our awesome team for another successful Breaking Strain Event. Available below are a selection of photos from the day and the provisional race times. Please have a flick through and get in touch if there are any discrepancies.

Has the post-race withdrawal left you hungry for another running event? Why not sign up to our Flash Mob Run or Run the Blades and prepare for another gruelling challenge.
