Archiestown 5K Report

We held a 5K on Sunday 10th July 2011 as something a bit different from our normal fundraising activities.  Thankfully the ‘Still Running’ Dufftown Jogscotland group supported us and pointed us in the right direction as to how to organise our run from planning the route to ordering medals.  We are very grateful to Audrey and Alex Benvie for all their help, advice and support.

Despite the heavy rain we had 71 entries from runners, joggers and walkers.

Archiestown 5K

The race was won by Paul Murdoch (Keith and District), the first female was Amanda Cruickshank (Keith and District), Mark Winton was the first male Jogscotland member and Dawn Hardie was the first female Jogscotland member.  These winners were given a bottle of 10yo Macallan which were donated for the event by The Macallan Distillers.

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 a fantastic £2018.49 which was raised from entries, sponsors, 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 we are hoping to hold the event again next year but it may be earlier in the year so watch this space for details. Results and times can be downloaded here.
