Third time's a charm at Moray

The Benromach 10 More in Moray will take place on Saturday, August 22, starting at 9:00 am. It's the final of the Benromach Three Tens Series.

10 More in Moray is the third largest event of its kind in Scotland and attracts riders of all abilities from across Britain. Already more than 300 riders have entered joining another 1,500 that have taken part in the two previous Benromach Three Tens events at Fort William in Lochaber and Kirroughtree, Dumfries and Galloway.

Organisers No Fuss Events will be setting up camp at Milnes High School in Fochabers in the north east of Scotland with this year's race returning to the Ordequish Woods. The 10-mile course includes a mixture of forestry roads and singletrack with new trails and the natural sections high in the woods above the Gulley Monster, which proved such a huge success in 2008.

Participants can compete as a solo or relay teams of two, three or four. The race is run on an endurance format with teams and individuals competing to see who can complete the most laps in 10 hours.

Entertainment and music will happen throughout the race weekend, beginning with a party on Friday evening in the Christies Garden Centre in Fochabers.

The overall series winners will be announced after the 10 More in Moray. One lucky rider will also be picked to win a trip to compete in the famous Moonshine Trail in New Zealand early in 2010.
