Here are the results for GMC 2012 :-
UPDATE 21/11/12 – Routegadget is now loaded up, separately for the Forest sections and the Hill sections of both days. PLEASE would all competitors take the time to add their routes, as this will help the planners improve future events. You can also analyse the splits using Splitsbrowser and Splitalyzer.
More photos from Ali Robertson who would also like to thank Maroc for the use of their controls.
UPDATE 20/11/12 – couple of extra sponsor acknowledgements and a message from the organiser added at the end of this post.
We were incredibly lucky with the weather again for the GMC with blue skies throughout and I’m told “Good event – lots of happy faces at the download” so I’m guessing everyone enjoyed it whether or not they managed to bag a prize (like a certain happy chappy pictured below).
Big thank you to Sean for an ace bit of organising again (see his comments below), Ali for the planning and Ian for controlling and acting as official photographer again. We’ll give you a link to the rest of his photos just as soon as he’s had time to go through them all and if any of you took photos en route you’d like to share then email them or the link to firstname.lastname@example.org please.
A big thank you to Haglöfs, Braemar Mountain Sports, Cotswold Outdoor and Tiso for donating prizes to help make the GMC that little bit more special.
Sean the Organiser says:
Well done to all the runners for coping with the short days, long heather and freezing nights. While there were a few scratched legs everyone enjoyed themselves and enjoyed the glorious east coast weather at its best. Thanks to everyone who knew their limits and either dropped out or sped up! Everyone finished within the course cut off time on Sunday.
Thanks to all the marshals from Scouts, Gramp and Cosmic Hillbashers, and to Deeside and Gordon Scouts for the equipment and help setting up. Scout leaders again ran the catering and on their behalf we’re pleased to donate £120 to the Braemar Pipe and Chanter group to help fund new instruments for their young pipers. Thanks to Fasque Estates for permission to use their land and to all the companies who provided prizes.
Watch this space for GMC-2014!!
