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.
The Illuminator is a night time trail run that takes place each October on the Glen Tanar estate near Aboyne, Aberdeenshire. It has 3 race lengths, an 8km, a 15km and a 15 mile. You can find out more about The Illuminator here.
This year, Colin Cadden took part in the 15 mile Illuminator.

The Dava Way is the perfect race to transition from marathons to ultras, or if you are a seasoned ultrarunner looking for a quick 50km.
This trail links the historic towns of Grantown-on-Spey and Forres, with a "fun" finish to show you the RD's favourite running spots as a child to make the 50km distance! The route predominantly follows the old Highland Railway line, which means an off road yet runnable trail.
On Saturday 11th December, Cairngorm Runners James, Jez, David and Colin participated in the 2023 event.
