Welcome to the website of the finest running club in Scottish academia - Edinburgh University Hare and Hounds - The Haries!

The Hare and Hounds is the University's cross-country, hill, road and long-distance running club. We like to think of it as a place where runners of all abilities can meet up, run and have a few beers (or diet cokes) together.

Grangemouth 10k

A fine body of Haries congregated at Edinburgh Waverly Station at 9 40 am to catch the replacement bus service to Grangemouth, the well loved and scenic tourist destination of choice for many. Notwithstanding bus chat of the forthcoming Isle of Man bonanza and the breaking of the toilet door, we eventually arrived at 11 at Polmont, greeted by Scotty who had so kindly agreed to take us to and from the stadium as chief tour guide of the Falkirk vicinity. What a guy.

KB5 road race 2014!

As the sun rose upon Edinburgh on 8th March 2014, many a fine Harie was ready to take on our very special KB5 road race! Yes, a road rather than mud spattered cross country course; wearing normal trainers instead of fell shoes is something of a novelty to those used to the hills. Yet many turned up to take on the KB5 course: 5 miles incorporating hard road ascents and stunning scenery over Braids hills.

National Cross Country Championships - Falkirk 22.02.14

It was a braw day. And as we arrived at Waverley station we all burst into tears. Why? Well it was the last cross country of the season, and as a hardcore haries, this is heartbreaking news. After coming to terms with the situation we hopped on the train to Falkirk and crammed in some last minute carb loading. Jack moaned about the lack of pictures at recent races so began with taking some selfies.

Over the Hill! HBT vs the Haries...

Many a fine Harie woke up on 17th February 2014, and upon drinking in the glorious sunny rays and deep blue sky, were most surely filled with excitement. Excitement at the imminent prospect of donning green fancy dress attire to show the HBT crew what a dapper bunch the mighty green army are. Just appreciating the beauty of Arthur's Seat and the crags was enough to inspire a team of haries to find a partner and go for a run to remember.

BUCS Cross-Country Championships 2014 - Stirling

With BUCS Cross Country taking place closer to home than usual in 2014 many Haries may have been disappointed by the lack of an all weekend trip away. In no way, however, did this shake the continually impressive commitment of the finest runners in the land, and it gives me great pleasure to announce the first outstanding success of the weekend: despite dropouts fifty Haries raced on Saturday and many more gave excellent support - fantastic turnout!
