Sunday saw the RAM athletics final held at Queens Park stadium Inverness. Moray Road Runners qualified through the previous heats and were represented by the following athletes in their respective age categories, under 13 girls Eden Wojcik, Beth Urquhart, Nicole Taylor, Zara Gill, under 13 boys Roy Taylor, Lewis Paterson, Rhys Cantlie, under 15 girls Megan McKay, Ellyn Smith, Harriet Whelan, Niamh Grant and under 17 girls Beth Grant and Niamh Whelan .
The stadium was jam packed with both athletes and spectators and our juniors were competing against the following clubs Ellon & Peterhead, Fife, Forres, Elgin Athletics, Inverness, Nairn, Dundee, Banchory, Ross County, Caithness and Aberdeen
The event started at 1145 with the field events followed at 1200 hours by the track events. The weather was a mix of sunshine and showers with the wind making an appearance now and again.
All of the juniors performed to the best of their ability and a few new PB’s were obtained, they are a credit to the club and themselves and show the club in a great light.
Overall a good year for MRR at the RAM athletics, not only with the named athletes above but for all who took part in the previous events this year.
Maybe next year we may attract a greater representation from senior members.
