Events/Results, Grampian Adventure Challenge

Grampian Adventure Challenge

Well done to all the runners in the three teams who entered the first Grampian Adventure challenge. The winning team were Maersk with Genesis second closely followed by Fugro. For their performance Maersk take home the Grampian Bonsai as a reminder of all those forests they have been running through over the past few weeks. Look after it! The winning male and female were both members of Gramp (they knew what they were doing!) and the first non-orienteers were Craig Burry and Claire Anderson.

Genesis team pictured here but sadly we didn’t manage to catch the others – did you? Send us your photos if you have any please.

If you want to continue your orienteering you are welcome to come along to all the events which run every Wednesday through the summer, continue in the Autumn with the urban series and if that’s not enough the night series over the winter. We hope to see you in the woods!

Final results

Cheers
