Mighty Drambuster set to challenge the adventurous

Those with a spirit of adventure are being encouraged to take on three unique challenges this year being promoted by a Lossiemouth-based charity.

With plans already well advanced for the Cairngorm to Coast Challenge in May for the RAF Benevolent Fund’s Moray group, Outfit Moray have added the ‘Mighty Moray Drambuster’ in June.

There will then be a few months to recover before at third challenge – the ‘Moray Challenge’ being planned for October.

The Mighty Moray Drambuster will involve participants traversing all 95 miles of the Moray Way in a single day and will involve three disciplines – canoeing, walking or running and mountain biking. All proceeds from that event will go towards Cash for Kids, Quarrier’s Care Support and Outfit Moray.

Outfit Moray’s chief executive, Ian Rideout, said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of the Mighty Moray Drambuster, a new charity endurance event that will compliment two other new charity events we are supporting this year – the RAF Benevolent Fund Cairngorm to Coast Challenge and the Moray Challenge, schedule for October.”

The charity is also holding the first in a series of three ‘Spirit of Adventure’ evenings with the support of the Windswept Brewery. Opening that series on Friday at the Universal Hall in Findhorn is a talk by RAF Mountain Rescue team leader David ‘Heavy’ Whalley.

Mr Whalley, an Outfit Moray patron, will talk of how outdoor adventure changed his life.

Registration for the Drambuster event opens on Monday, March 2 at 10am and can be made online at the Outfit Moray website.
