Grampian Mountain Challenge 2012 Glen Dye – Results

Here are the results for GMC 2012 :-

Overall results    Day 1 – Splits   Day 2 – Splits   Routegadget

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.

More photos here from Donnie Mann     Some photos here from Sarah Dunn
And if you can’t spot yourself in all those then try this lot of photos from Ian Hamilton
Photos from Simon Caldwell

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 flump@care4free.net 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!!

  1. Great event, great organisation, well worth the long drive from York. Was hoping for low cloud and blizzards, but blue skies and sunshine was a good 2nd best. Hope to be back in 2014!

  6. Sarah’s pictures are amazing, it looks even when photgrahed and framed than when I was struggling around. How did you manage to take such great pictures, I had all on just to keep going.

  7. An excellent event, thanks to everyone who helped, especially Sean and Sarah for organising, Ali and Iain for planning and controlling. The overnight camp was great; arranging a party with food, drink, lighting and heating in a remote location in late november is a challenging task. The weather was spectacular and everyone I talked to enjoyed themselves. Thanks.

  8. Special thanks to the sponsors – Haglöfs, Lowe Alpine and Braemar Mountain Sports – for being so kind to sponsor what is a fledgling event. It’s really appreciated by the competitors. I for one will be looking to support those companies in future – and why not, their kit is great.
