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

UPCOMING EVENTS (click series or event names for details link)

We’re slowly starting up again but at the moment it’s club members only (to aid contact tracing should the need arise and keep numbers attending events to a minimum.) We’ll send emails to members for individual events as they come up as arrangements may change. See our Covid 19 page for more info.

You can join the Mobile O revolution though 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.
