Latest update for JDC after Glen Dye.
Lots of blaeberries and lots of sun… what more do you need? And some good performances too:
Noah came first on white, Connor came in fourth on yellow, Isobel was fourth on orange and Naomi came first on green.
In terms of overall positions our youngest Gramp Oliver is still leading the M8s and there are potential medal positions for Robert, Hannah, Morven, Kirsty, Isobel and Naomi.
With only three more events to go it’s time to rake those points in!
Next event on Sunday 4th September.
Make sure you know what Out of Bounds and uncrossable i.e. “forbidden to cross” walls/fences look like on these ISSOM maps – PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THIS GUIDE. Uncrossable means forbidden to cross as we don’t have permission for you to do so. If in doubt and the wall/fence/piece of land you’re about to cross looks private then show some respect and don’t do it!
Reg 18:00 – 18:45ish, last start 19:00, £3 Senior, £1 Junior/Student (tbc)
Times are a bit earlier than Summer Series to catch the light but you still might want a torch for the last couple if the weather’s gloomy.
Juniors under 16 should be accompanied by an adult (to comply with BOF insurance requirements).

Are you up for two full days of mixed orienteering and mountain navigation over some of Deeside’s finest moorland and forest?
Fully catered overnight camp?
The chance to earn a much-coveted RUN GMC shirt?
Back by popular demand, we bring you the Grampian Mountain Challenge 2016 around (maybe even over) Morven and surrounding areas on the 12th and 13th of November.
The scenery may have changed but the format will be the same with three classes run as pairs or solo and probably some spot prizes too – there is a campaign brewing for a sub-competition for Dads & Daughters in Class C this year (although maybe it should be Parent and Progeny to be totally PC about it?)
Put the date in your diaries now, start tapping up running partners if you want company out there in the wilds – entries starting to creep up now so don’t miss out.
