Summer Monday Socials

Information about June & July Monday socials

May - Ian Jackson’s hashes were very much enjoyed by all. He had created both a walker’s and a runner’s course around the River Almond and the streets bordering it in the Barnton area –even venturing briefly onto the Dalmeny and Cammo Estates. Ian had found some great routes – an interesting off-path log traverse and a novel way of crossing the Queensferry Road! Many thanks to Ian for the considerable time and effort he put into making this evening so enjoyable.

June - Monday 7th June is the annual Pentland Skyline run from Nine Mile Burn to Flotterstone (a distance of some 10km and height climb of approx 560m). Please arrive sharp at the Ranger’s car park at Flotterstone for 6.15pm to allow car sharing down to Nine Mile Burn. If you are arriving late please ensure somebody on the run is aware of this. Following the run you may wish to have a drink in the Flotterstone Inn but on a quiet evening it is unlikely that they will be selling food after 7.30pm.

July - Planning to move the Social to Sunday 4th July on Cramond Island - would need a wetsuit to go out on Monday evening! Orienteering and bring a picnic… Watch the website and look out for Secretary’s e-mail closer to the event.
