Edinburgh Running Network's LP Run returns to the capital on Sunday (24 August) for its fifth staging. The run is based on the oldest race in Houston, Texas (now in its 47th year), and involves running as many Revolutions Per Minute (laps) of a track as you can during 33 and a third minutes, all the while listening to music.
Entrants are responsible for counting their own laps but there will be independent verification of the front-runners and prizes for the top male and female finishers, as well as spot prizes. There is also the option of choosing a song you'd like to hear played as you're running, and to to mark ERN's 10th year, organisers are asking participants to choose a song from when they were 10.
As well as the race, there is also a cake competition. The cakes will be judged as the race is run, and to tie in with ERN's 10th anniversary, the theme will be birthday cakes. Prizes will be awarded for the tastiest cake, the best dressed cake and best traybake. After the race is done and dusted - arguably the best bit - there will be tea, coffee and cake!
