    Story

    Being a keen supporter of better facilities for athletes I persuaded my work colleagues to enter a Work Step Count Challenge to Raise money for the new Moray Sports Centre project. To make it more interesting we have 3 teams counting steps while working and doing a "virtual walk around Scotland". The "Challenge" starts on 18th April 2016 for 8 weeks ending on the 12th June 2016

    For over twenty years a new sports centre has been spoken about but now its on its way (2017). Moray has a lot of talented athletes, in the world of athletics. Mark Dry Scottish Hammer thrower, Commonwealth bronze medalist hopefully heading off to Rio this summer started off here in Moray at EAAC with very poor facilities.

    We would love to raise as much as possible so that we can have better facilities for the youngsters to achieve their goals. Hopefully we can raise enough money to get some indoor athletic facilities with the view to getting some outdoor ones in the near future.

    We would like to thank you for reading this and hope that you can donate to a good cause. All proceeds will be donated to the project.

      The Challenge has come to an end, the aim was to cover 2,000,000 steps approx 1000 miles around Scotland The final result was really close Trinity Trotters won with nearly 3,000,000/1600 miles the final destination being Arrochar (2nd time round). Only 3 miles ahead of Steppenwolf's with Stressed out Steppers lagging a bit behind..but still completing the challenge. THANK YOU to the followers and all donations received.

      At the start of the final week there is less than 100 miles separating the 3 teams. Trinity Trotters still lead the way while Stressed out Steppers overtake Steppenwolf's. Its going to be an interesting week all teams are fighting for the top spot. Who will be victorious??

      That's about all this poor pensioner can afford after paying the lab bill for a bridge. Good luck though
