Some awesome racing domination this weekend by the gold and maroon.  First up the Glen Moray 10/10 offered two great options organised by Paul Rogan of Forres Harriers of an interesting 10k course and a stightly rarer chance to tackle a testing 10 miler, all profits admirably donated to charity.  Andy Macrae smashed his 10k PB running home in 35.28 and 3rd overall with Paul Miller pushing him all the way in 4th 35.48.  This was backed up by strong running by Jenny Bannerman winning the ladies race in 37.38 and Jackie Mair winning the vets title in 43.53 meaning the team price and a shed load of whiskey was won.  There was similar success in the 10 mile race with Tim Cooke finishing 3rd in 62.11 and Sarah Leibnitz smashing the ladies race in 63.18, Roma Shepherd podiumed also in 3rd place in 67.51.  Backed up by Dean Caine the foursome took the team prize and also a shed load of whiskey.  Paul Ross also collected a dram with a 73.34 and a win in vets category.

Out in the sunny strath Ross Nixon was drawn to the allore of cakes and mud for the Knockfarrel Hill race.  When interviewed prior to the race he said “my aim is to beat as many Highland Hillbillies as possible, it’s not that I hate them but I just think the bog worrying cake munchers bitterly dislike a roadie beating them at “their” races, so I aim to scalp a few and beat them back to the  battenbergs after!”. He was true to his word and finished 11th with several tartan vests in his rear view mirror.
