Is it just me or is anyone else getting a reaction to the chemicals in the commie these days? Mainly a streaming / congested nose for about 24 hrs but really dry skin too. Doesn't seem to happen at other pools.

This week Rubén will be leading a trail run around the numerous paths on Arthur's Seat and the Crags. Suitable for all abilities. Push on the uphills and wait at the specified point for everyone to arrive. Downhills will be done as a group at the pace of the slowest runner.
