Have you spotted the SOA website article on reporting ticks for a research project?
Nice to see Michaela and Lucie from AUOC, a Belgian family and a few other well-kent runners and occasional visitors to our Summer Series helping to boost the numbers to a very respectable 48 given it’s peak holiday season. Although not wall-to-wall sunshine it was a fine, warm evening but amazingly no midges to bug us – seems like the continuing dry has really hit them for six this year or have I just been lucky?
Thanks to Ian H for organising including a no paths option for the Long Tech (not that that slowed the whizz kids down any.)
Next week we’ll be at Scolty.

Grampian Mountain Challenge – Scotland’s Friendly Sociable Winter Mountain Marathon
The GMC will be back in 2018 staying with its traditional date slot and will be over the weekend of 10 / 11 November 18.
It will be held in the Braemar area. All the usual features will be present, including a remote overnight camp with catering and heating, kit transfer to and from the camp, and orienteering and traditional hill sections over the two days. Ali R has agreed to take on the job of Planner once more, and Dave K and Ian H are again doing the Organising and Controlling.
NEWS: We have the potential to provide Fri night accommodation (sleeping bag on the floor) in Castleton Hall if we get 10 or more takers – email email@example.com if this is of interest – and there will be Portaloos at the overnight camp.
Check the updated information sheet in the link below for more details.
