2014 Scottish Orienteering Champions

Not many Gramps went down for this year’s Scottish Champs but a high percentage of those who did made their mark and either won their age class or got onto the podium for the top three. We even managed to field three relay teams who did well too. Obviously the cream of the Gramp crop this year – well done guys!

W10B 1st Kirsty Farquharson
W10B 2nd Morven Farquharson
W20E 2nd Katrina McLeod (EUOC really but answers to Gramp still)
W50L 3rd Carolyn McLeod
W55S 1st Oonagh Grassie
W55S 3rd Anne Hoy
W65S 1st Margaret Aust
M18E 1st Sasha Chepelin
M35S 1st David Esson
M50S 1st Evgueni Chepelin
M50S 3rd Iain McLeod
M60L 1st Rob Hickling
M70L 1st Neil McLean

(With a couple of obvious exceptions it looks like our metier is the short course.
Maybe we should push for a Middle Championship to test my theory?)

Relays
Men Open Gramp One 4th
Alexander Chepelin/Jack Gomersall/Calum McLeod

Handicap 14+ Gramp Two 6th
Robert Daly/Lesley Gomersall/Adrian Will

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.

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.
