Archiestown 5K 2012

Archiestown 5K 2012

Following last year’s success we held another 5K on Sunday 15th July 2012.  Once again the ‘Still Running’ Dufftown Jogscotland group supported us and we are very grateful to Audrey and Alex Benvie for all their help, advice and support.

This year we enjoyed good weather, unlike last year’s downpour, and we had 60 entries from runners, joggers and walkers of all abilities.

 The race was won by Paul Rogan (Forres Harriers), the first female was Amanda Cruickshank (Keith and District) who was also last year’s winner, William Bremner  was the first male Jogscotland member and Inga Van Der Heiden was the first female Jogscotland member both of whom are with ‘Still Running’ Dufftown Jogscotland.  These winners were given a bottle of 10yo Macallan each which were donated for the event by The Macallan Distillers.  We opened up the event to all ages and we had our first under 12 winner, Jessica Laing who received a voucher and some sweets.

A post race buffet was provided by Playgroup Parents and Staff for all and certainly went down well.

We do not have a net figure to date but our gross takings were £451.74 which was raised from entries, sponsors (still to get the total), the raffle and donations.  A big thank you must go out to all those who participated, helped, donated prizes and food and to all those who gave sponsors.

Due to the success of this event again we will be holding this event next year so watch this space for details.

The final results are now available to download as a .pdf file.
