Hi Folks,

My girlfriend (now fiancée) is moving up from Northamptonshire to Edinburgh in a couple weeks to live with me.  She is working from home and doesn't know anyone here, so I'm a bit worried about her being lonely and finding it hard to meet people.  


I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good sociable running/fitness/crossfit club (ideally in or around the morningside/bruntsfield area) which she could join?  Ideally it would be a less serious club with a big social side to it so she can make friends etc.

She was a member of a running club down south for a few years and has 2 marathons and numerous races under her belt, but she gave it up a year ago and now just runs for fun (with the odd small race here and there) instead.  

Thanks for your help folks!

If you pop over to the General forum, there's a Scottish Runners thread - there are a few Edinburgh locals on there who will be able to help out.

Oh, and congratulations on the engagement!
