It’s a Coll to arms this weekend (or should that be legs). The annual half marathon returns to the Hebridean island of Coll on Saturday, alongside a 10k and 5k. The half marathon is a multi-terrain, one lap race around the island. The aforementioned Skye Bridge 10K sees yet more Hebridean huffing and puffing.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend!
