Neale McLanachan like most runners, enjoys a challenge

Neale enjoyed the challenge and here is his account of the event
(Thursday, 20 June 2019)

On arriving at the start line on a cool winters night there was plenty of anticipation in the air for the inaugural Leith Harbour Free 5 and 10km run. A dedicated bunch of runners and walkers eagerly awaited the start before making their way down the Harbourside walkway into the night. Like most runners I enjoy a challenge and trying a new run/race is exciting and sharing the experience with like minded people keeps me coming back for more. The more or less flat there and back course is very achievable and the Harbourside offers stunning views, well maybe not so much in the dark but as the light returns it will. Finally whatever your fitness level this event will offer a challenge and reward you by improving your fitness and helping you towards your goals.
