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.
