Tour De Moffat Race - Race Report by Yvonne Kerr

32 runners took part in the Tour De Moffat race at the weekend (24th November). Entry was free with donations to Moffat mountain rescue and a fantastic sum of £327 was raised. The course is a mix of trail, hill and road and goes around the circumference of Moffat. Conditions were good for November with a slight drizzle, no wind and only slightly muddy on the field and hill sections.

It was good to see runners from other local clubs coming along to support the race and we had runners from Lauderdale limpers, Kirkintilloch Olympians, Tinto hill runners, Dumfries harriers, Hamilton harriers, Dumfries running club and Cairnsmore mile munchers. We would like to thank all runners for taking part. We would also like to thank Kevin Plummer and Jim Buchanan for organising the race. Thanks also go to Moffat Outdoors and Ambercare for sponsoring the prizes for each category and to all the marshals, time keepers, supporters and to anyone else who came along to help.
