As pleasing though was the effort and spirit shown by everyone in all age categories. Well done everyone, especially those representing MRR for the first time. It was another proud day for the club.
Many thanks to Ross Nixon and all at Inverness Harriers for putting on a fantastic event. Special mention as well to Sophie Dunnett, Steve Murdoch and all the officials for their sterling efforts in ensuring the quality of Athletics in the North continues to go from strength to strength.
