MOYSTON - More than 100 people descended on Moyston for the inaugural Moyston CFA Endurance Ride.
The two day event consisted of four different length races over distances of five, 20, 44 and 88-kilometres.
A total of 79 riders took part, made up of members from around the region and across the state, as well as competitors from New South Wales and South Australia.
It was the first time an endurance ride has been held in the area, and all participants enjoyed the picturesque surroundings of the Grampians.
AME was the major sponsor of the highly successful event, which was also well supported by local Ararat businesses.
Close to $3,000 was raised, which will go towards a new fire truck for the Moyston CFA. The Moyston Primary School also benefited from the influx in visitors, raising $800 over the weekend.
Organisers are now looking at making the Endurance Ride an annual event, with support coming from the Ararat Rural City.
