We will run again!
We are hoping to hold the 2021 half marathon on Saturday 9th October at 1pm: please enter here.
We are taking care to ensure that the event is Covid-compliant. Our plans will inevitably evolve as regulations change, and we will publish a full Risk Assessment in mid-September. For now, this is the plan (old-timers from previous years will notice some changes):
Registration – from 11am on Saturday 9th October – will be in the Car Park of the Primary School, where there is ample parking.
Payment: Ideally, please pay by BACS in advance (details on the form), or bring the correct cash: £20 for non-members of Scottish Athletic Union; £18 for members. (We won’t be able to use the card machine outside.) Toilets will be available in the Community Hall (across the road) as usual.
The Start Line is ~1 mile south of the School. There is some parking available nearby, but no public toilet.
We hope to be able to offer the bus shuttle from Registration to the Start Line; we will confirm nearer the time. If not, it is a pleasant short-ish walk!
Runners are welcome to leave a bag of warm clothes etc, which will be transported to the Finish Line (at the Primary School Playing Field).
There will be water stations around the course, but we probably won’t be able to offer sweets this year.
The Finish Line will be as usual, but you will have to award yourself your Finisher’s Medal, rather than be presented with it!
We won’t be able to offer Tea and Prize Giving in the Community Hall. Tea and cakes (made by our excellent local professionals) will be provided up on the Playing Field (donations welcome!) and, to ensure runners do not have to wait around for too long after finishing, Prize Giving will be soon after the winners in each category finish.
We are sad not to be able to offer a Ceilidh this year; we very much hope to next year.
Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions. We very much look forward to welcoming you, and your families and friends, back to Coigach for this small, friendly event.
