This year, the Edinburgh Rat Race, the high adrenaline multi-disciplined team adventure sports challenge, will be kicked off in outlandish style with the inaugural Edinburgh Rat Run – The after work Friday night ‘Fun-Run-In-Your-Work-Clothes!’.

The Rat Run is simple: Leave work; keep your work clothes on (or borrow someone else’s! – Just as long as you evoke the working vibe); Run 4k around central Edinburgh with your Rat Run ‘colleagues’ and then join the Friday evening Office Party.

A fantastic way to end the week and if you are struggling to wrestle yourself away from your desk, chain yourself to it and bring it along!  It’s short but sharp – 4k distance and a solid commute around the block.
