(11th May) 35 Moravians Contest the Monaughty Forest Run

The Moray Forest Runs Series got under way at Monaughty on Wednesday night and there was a brilliant turnout of Moravians.

Thirty five ran in the 3 races, mainly juniors it has to be said, although there were several more parents there in support. Among the 31 juniors was Fraser Haig who was our fastest competitor in the 4-mile open race with one enormous hill. Fraser had a good time of 30:42 to finish 26th in a race won by GB biathlete Vinnie Fountain (26:50). Next best was another junior, albeit a rather senior one in Kathryn Barr (56th in 35:57).

In the junior races, star Under-16 man was 12-year-old David Spencer who was 3rd, beaten only by 2 14 year olds). Lewis Hay came 6th with Isobel Howard one place behind as fastest girl.

We went even better in the Under 12s. Bruce Evans won the race, Faith Kenyon was fastest girl (16th overall) and Eilidh Hay was 3rd girl (22nd overall).

The next event in the MFR series is at Culbin on Wed 24th May. As this is World Orienteering Day we'd like as many people as possible to run in their Moravian kit, and we'll see if we can organize a team photo at some stage in proceedings.
