Bhuachaille Hill Race & The Dramathon – 21/10/2017

Bhuachaille Hill Race

Moray Road Runners had another successful weekend with athletes taking part in a couple of races of the more muddy and hilly kind.

A great start for Kirstie Rogan in her first race in Moray Road Runner colours.

She was 1st place lady at the Bhuachaille Hill Race.

Her husband Robbie was 4th male.

Congratulations to both of them and welcome to #teamyella

 

The Dramathon

The Dramathon is a marathon distance race along the Speyside Way from Glenfarclas distillery to Glenfiddich distillery. The route takes in several distilleries along the route each offering a whisky experience to ignite your senses. By getting stamped at each participating distillery you can pick up the corresponding miniatures at the end of the race.

You have the choice of a full marathon (Glenfarclas to Glenfiddich), a half-marathon (Tamdhu to Glenfiddich), a 10K (Aberlour to Glenfiddich) or a relay race (team of 4 divides up the marathon).

The route uses mainly forest tracks with some occasional short sections on minor roads and some hilly terrain.

MRR had several runners in each race, but the run of the day has to go to Louise Cartmell, who won the Half Marathon, a full 2 minutes in front of the 2nd placed athlete.

Well done Louise on an awesome run, and well done to all MRRs who took part and also who volunteered to Marshall at the inaugural event, which is looking like it will become a regular feature.
