About Us

Welcome to the Cairngorm Runners!

The club began in 2007, in response to a demand from local people who were looking to train for the Aviemore Highland Half Marathon. Since then, the club has been going from strength to strength. We are a friendly club that welcomes runners of all abilities - from absolute beginners to elite runners.

Club runs are held on Monday and Wednesday evenings, 6:30pm.  The season starts in Spring and continues until it gets too dark!.  There are also a number of casual runs, events and training sessions throughout the year.

Monday Runs - Meet at Coylumbridge Hilton Hotel (Fun House car park)
These follow Jog Scotland training program for beginner and intermediate runners.  Advanced runners set their runs based on the group preferences.

Wednesday Training - Meet at the Hayfield Car-park on the ski road
These are varied training sessions such as hill runs and speed work, lead by a coach and aimed at those who want to improve rapidly

Other Casual Runs - Check out our face book group.  There is always someone looking for a running buddy.
They are not official club runs and normally end in coffee and cake!

Our normal meeting point for Monday/Wednesday is the car park at the Columbridge Hotel (the 'Fun House'), just outside Aviemore.

 

From Aviemore:

  • At the roundabout by La Taverna, take the B970 ski road towards Cairngorm Mountain
  • After 1.3 miles, turn left into the Columbridge Hotel
  • Turn right at the roundabout
  • The meeting point is in the car park ahead

 

Please join us at any time!
