Archiestown 5K 2015

Archiestown 5K 2015

This year’s 5K was held on Sunday 3rd June 2015 and we had phenomenal 132 runners, joggers and walkers of all abilities taking part on the day. This is our biggest entry to date which will be a great boost to the Knockando Playgroup funds and we would like to apologise for those few who didn’t get a medal! The weather was not as kind to us as it has been but that didn’t dampened the competitors spirits.

This year’s race was won by local lad Kenny Wilson from Moray Road Runners in a new course record of 15.49. The first female was Anna MacFadyen from Forres Harriers in another course record of 19.32. The first Male JogScotland winner was Ed Rattray from Dufftown JogScotland in 22.48 and the first Female JogScotland winner was Lisa Morrison from Keith JogScotland in 23.23. These winners were given a bottle of 10yo Macallan each which were once again kindly donated by The Macallan Distillers. The first junior male was Cameron Bell in 22.09 with David Spencer from Forres Harriers being runner up in 22.42. The first female junior was Lily Carmichael from Forres Harriers in 22.17 and runner up was Zoe Oag in 22.32.

A splendid post-race buffet was provided by Playgroup Parents, friends and Staff which was well received and despite the numbers we did not run out! Our reputation for a ‘good feed’ was upheld once again.

The gross figure raised at the event to date is £1127.56 and we anticipate that the net figure will be in excess of £950 once all expenses are paid. A big thank you must go out to all those who participated, helped, donated prizes and food and to all those who gave sponsors. This event would not continue to be a success without you. We are very grateful to you and we look forward to seeing you all again next year and we will be prepared for large numbers!
