A major sporting event starting in Nairn on Saturday 18th September has sold out:
'With a one month to go until the inaugural Nokia Coast to Coast Adventure Challenge, the ultimate multi-sport adventure race across the Scottish Highlands on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 September 2010, entries have completely sold out. Demand for the 109-mile adventure challenge on foot, mountain bike and kayak from Nairn to Ballachulish has been huge with one thousand places selling out as early as July 2010; and more than 100 people on the waiting list. '
Yes the main event is sold out but Allmedia Scotland reports that you can still enter for the first part of the even along the river to Cawdor:
'Although the main challenge is sold out there are still spaces left for the Nokia Coast to Cawdor 10k run which also starts at Nairn and traces the route of the River Nairn to Cawdor Castle. It features on and off road sections and is predominantly classed as a trail run.'
Hopefully there will be a bit of spin-off for the local economy with so many people entering this event. Anyone looking for accommodation for this event might wish to try visitnairn.com
