About the area

Highland Perthshire Marathon Image

Since covering the region in 2010, running in the area has continued to flourish with several new events - such as Highland Perthshire marathon and half marathon - being introduced as well as the arrival of parkrun in Dundee last year.

Home to some of Scotland's most beautiful scenery - the countryside provides excellent running terrain for popular races; and cities Dundee and Perth have a wealth of facilities, services and specialist retailers. Stores in Dundee have started organising their own events. Run-4-It, managed by Kristine Shand, held its Twilight Autumn Series this year, and Sweatshop, with Lorna Black at the helm, organises a 5K event every week.

Facilities such as the George Duncan Athletics Arena in Perth continue to serve local runners and running clubs. One club who regularly use the arena is the Perth Road Runners who also stage the popular Heaven and Hell half marathon and Brig Bash 5. We speak to club chair Kenneth Stewart about the club's history and their plans for the future.

As well as a strong club scene, jogscotland has a big presence in Angus and Tayside. Elaine Scott, a jogscotland leader in Carnoustie tells us about her group. Woman are well-catered for in the region with the Smokies 10 race organised by Arbroath Footers and the Tayside Running Sisters 5K in Monikie offering great events.

Further north, those who like a challenge will be keen to take on Glen Clova marathon. One of the toughest races in the region, the undulating course is hard on the legs, but the spectacular scenery is easy on the eye. Runners are rewarded afterwards with homemade stovies at the post-race ceilidh held by race organisers Forfar Road Runners.

Running clubs In Tayside And Angus

There are numerous well-established running clubs throughout Angus and Tayside giving those who take their running seriously an opportunity to join like-minded people for training sessions and race competitions.

Being part of a club is a great way of motivating yourself and improving performance; clubs usually meet twice a week, often for programmed sessions, and there can be other opportunities for other organised runs. It's also a great way to make friends and get involved in social activities.

The Arbroath Footers

Clubs come in various shapes and sizes - some focus exclusively on road and trail running while others have junior sections and take part in a range of track and field events. Competitions and racing are most important in some clubs while the social dimension can be a big part of others. One successful, friendly club is Arbroath Footers who we highlight in our fact box.

One successful, friendly club in the area is the Arbroath Footers.

Level Mixture of levels, everyone can comfortably run six miles minimum. All members start together and follow the same route as a group, but all at different speeds.
Sessions Club nights are twice weekly but a lot of the members meet up at the weekend to run, this is usually pre organised and helps those who are training for different races, marathons etc. During the winter months speed work and hills are included in the training (running around Keptie Pond) and in summer sessions tend to include a 6-8 mile run in the countryside.
Club Races Ladies only Smokies 10 mile race, Bill Powell 10K and Bill Stoddart 10K
Anything Else? We're a small friendly club and our Christmas Party nights are always great fun, we award the club trophies for the Bill Stoddart and Bill Powell races, club person of the year, and other accolades that are voted for internally.
