Congratulations to the runners in the Banff races

The Banff half and marathon finally happened last weekend after being rained out the previous year. Marathon results and Half Marathon results – quite a lot of people from Cochrane in the half. Note for both of these races the turnaround was not at the half way point, the courses had to be adjusted due to grizzly bears on the original course.

New start location for Saturday runs

New runners needed, the Saturday runs now start from Coffee Traders at 8:30AM on Saturdays.

Club runs are posted in the sidebar, if you are interested in doing well in races, then check out our Fun Training Group – Tuesdays is the best day for beginners because hill training is always fun in a group (and really hard to do solo).
