Events/Results

Post-AGM Bi-O-thlon @ Kirkhill 11/12/2011

Splits   Simple results and notes. Glad to see Ewen practically did the Bike O section (as opposed to impractically which would presumably mean by unicycle?) but dismayed to see that Carolyn won the Short Bi-O course on foot alone!! (Although maybe she should be DSQed as she didn’t wear a helmet or have to figure out how to carry her Emit brikke and steer at the same time?)

Thanks to Dave and family for cheerfully manning a somewhat chilly registration/transition while the rest of us had great fun battling through ice-encrusted puddles and braving death-defying descents on our bikes before taking off on wobbly legs for the Foot O section where more than one experienced orienteer was caught out by the control on the top of a big crag. Dagnabbit!

Did you enjoy it? Should we try more Bike O events? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Sundays

At least 4 courses – more details to follow very soon.

If you can’t make any of these events or prefer to avoid others fo the time being, you can join the Mobile O revolution  and download the MapRun app and have a go at some local courses using your phone to time yourself and even navigate with. Visit our MapRun page for instructions and a list of maps.
Or do one of our Temporary Orienteering Courses – see the TOC post for info.

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT EVENT? NEED A FIX NOW?

Then try a Permanent Orienteering Course in a local forest or park or try one of our Street O maps for a taste of urban O.
