Well, that was an excellent day. A record number of participants (65) and a lot of strong, brave running through the puddles. Mercifully Storm Callum passed through in perfect time, and the soft rain was coming down vertically rather than horizontally.
This is just a brief post to say that more will follow when some photos have been processed but for now: the results can be found on our Facebook page: Coigach Half Marathon.
Thanks to all runners and supporters from near and far for making the 7th Coigach Half Marathon a wonderful event.
A lovely account of the the 2017 race from Kenny Taylor (second-place with an impressive 1.25.39).
“I absolutely loved everything about the route and it must rank as one of Scotland’s most friendly races.” – we can’t ask for much more than that, can we?!

The fourth Coigach Half Marathon will be run on Saturday 17th October 2015 Start time this year is 1pm.
Apologies to anyone who was trying to download an entry from in the last couple of weeks and couldn’t because the site was password protected. I don’t know how this happened but I probably messed it up last time I was on – sorry. Anyway, our computer expert Lesley Muir has fixed the problem and we’re back on track. Thanks Lesley.
Less than a month now to the Half Marathon and we’ve already got more entries than last year so if you’re planning to do the run please get in touch as soon as you can. There’s no limit on numbers, yet, but it would help if we had an idea of how many folk there’ll be so we can sort out food, etc. There’s no bar in the hall after the race this year but there will be free hot food for all the runners; everyone else will need to pay a few quid but it’s all for a good cause.
Good luck with the training.
Only ten weeks to go before the second Coigach Half Marathon and looking forward to another great day. We already have twenty entrants, none of whom ran the race last year, so hoping for a bigger turn-out.
The set-up will be much the same as last year but we’ve put the start time back a bit so I make it home in daylight! We’re also hoping to provide free food, maybe soup and sandwiches, for all the runners.
