Edinburgh Marathon Festival 2022

Well done to everyone on Saturday at the EMF Junior Races!  From our 58+ BPS runners in the EMF Junior Races; to Naomi Sandilands and Shona Campbell, who provided a great set of 11 training practices in Pilrig Park and who staffed the BPS Meeting Place for the day itself, giving structure to the activities.  Thanks to Ivon Bartholomew for all the photos.  As the poster said – it’s about taking part and making memories as much as race times!  BPS runners ran in the kids kilometre, the 1.5 km, the 2 km and the Junior 5km.  What an amazing team!

There were also 7 former BPS runners, who are now at Drummond Community High School running in the Junior 5km. Shout out to Mrs Gowans, and team BPS EMF champion, Sandra Bagnall, who both ran the Adult 5km. Sandra is a former Broughton parent who used to organise team BPS and the Pilrig Park training practices, alongside Catriona Scott from 2017 to 2021.

Some comments from parents of our most recent runners:

“It was our first year and it was brilliant! The Pilrig Park runs were brilliant in the run up!”

“Our son really enjoyed the training sessions and taking part in the run today!”

“My kids ran for the first time and they had really good fun. They felt so happy as they got medals.”

Here are some of Ivon’s lovely photos.
