As many of you will know, the Edinburgh Marathon Festival is happening on 30-31st May in our beautiful city. The festival comprises 7 different races over 2 days with around 30,000 people taking part.
A lot of our students are participating in these races and we decided that in honour of our lovely students, we would like to give it a whirl and get involved in the action!
So you’ll be delighted to know that Allison and Heini are training for….. a 5k Power Walk! (mini fist-pump!) John is also going to run the 10k, so we’re covering a lot of bases!
We have started our training for this tough challenge and we’d love it if any of you wanted to join us on Saturday 30th May.
We will be powering through these challenges and then heading to the studio for our Saturday 1.15pm Hot Vinyasa & Yoga Mixed class. To make the day even more special we are going to donate all of the proceeds from the class to the Nepal Earthquake disaster appeal, so come along to class to help support this worthy appeal. We will also set up a Just Giving page in case anyone who can’t make the class would also like to donate.
Please let us know if you’ve signed up for one of these races and feel free to join us either at the race, or afterwards at our class at Gathering Essence studio! Any hints or tips on training or power walking will also be gratefully received :-)
Best of luck to everyone participating in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival!
Allison, Heini & John
