Who We Are
The Cosmics comprise of fairly like-minded folk living in and around Aberdeen who run over hills! Most club members compete in hill races and many participate in other sports. The club welcomes new members at all levels of ability, though it is worth remembering that hill running can be harder on the body than flat-running!
Ewen and Mike are the club coaches and organise training sessions - see Runs.
The club is run on an informal basis by the Cosmic Committee.
What Do We Do
The club trains at King's College playing field, Aberdeen on Tuesday evenings in the winter and within an hour's drive of Aberdeen, at various hill locations in summer. If you're not familiar with hill running, read about it on Scottish Hill Runners or give one of us a call before turning up.
