No 300 and what a good crowd. They came from as far as London for today’s run….. all 346 of us. with 48 first timers while 28 recorded personal best times.
Once again Michael McConnell led home the field - 4th time in a row and 27th overall and then volunteered for next week. Good stuff on both counts.
Juniors Matthew Knak and Aaron Middleton (11-14) were first juniors in 7th and 8th places. What a head to head that was.
Moira Davie from Forres Harriers was fastest woman in 14th place.
The event was made possible by 18 volunteers:
Bill MELVILLE • Katharine MELVILLE • Kenneth G N STEWART • Julie MELVILLE • Alice GALL • Isla MELVILLE • Lewis WILSON • Anna WOODHEAD • Olivia ELLIOTT • Fergus CLARK • Neil MACKINNON • Susan BLACK • Surinder PANPHER • Jane TANSLEY • Martin VALLANCE • Kristina CHRISTIE • John AULD • Bob STRATHIE including 4 juniors.
My very grateful thanks to them on what proved an eventful day with one runner suffering a severe cut to her arm as she fell on the rough tarmac stretch. We jigged the volunteer duties around to arrange transport to hospital.
