This site is owned by Mandy and Owain Williams. Two people who met through running and now want to share their passion with you.

They live, work and train in Edinburgh. 

This blog is a place for them to write about their running, training, races, highs and lows as well as general running related ramblings. A place to review products that they have used either while running or are in some way running related.

Running in Scotland is beautiful and most of the blogs will be about just that. Running in the Pentlands, around Edinburgh and surrounding areas. Occasionally there will be a blog about running elsewhere such as Inverness, Tiree or Amsterdam.

Feel free to leave a comment on any of the blog posts and you never know, you might be the next person to be RunningBeside.me.
