Event number 13
1st February 2020
So this week we were joined by some of the team from Run Garioch 2020 and on a chilly dry day 284 people ran, jogged and walked the course. We had 89 who were first timers some local and some from further afield and 78 recorded new Personal Bests so well done to all those who have achieved this. And well done to all our first timers and hopefully we will see you back soon !
On the day the Run Garioch 2020 team along with Garioch the Mascot were on hand to cheer and high five the runners and distributed vouchers for discounted places at this years races on 29 March. We also had two spot prizes for free places and they were won by Iain CARNIE and Amber JOHNSTON. Enjoy the race guys !!
