Gramps at the LAMM

Congratulations to all those Gramps recovering from the weekend’s exertions at the LAMM in Strathcarron … LAMM Team Gomersall

A class: Tim Gomersall & Ryan McHenry 3rd
C class: Jack Gomersall & Anna Wells 2nd
D class: Sam & Lesley Gomersall 2nd
Elite class: Dave Thomson & Gareth Yardley 1st Vets (of those that didn’t podium)

And other names spotted in the lists… Ian Hamilton, Dave and Liz Kirk (any others? No club filter to help the search so leave a comment).

Tempted at having a go at a mountain marathon? How about Gramp’s own GMC in November? If you need a lightweight rucsac perhaps ask the Gomersalls, they may have some going spare …LAMM Vets

One thought on “Gramps at the LAMM

  1. Massive congratulations to all the Gomersalls, but especially Sam and Lesley for WINNING the veterans prize on the D course. Spectacular family success…

    Ian Hamilton and Alec Erskine did very well and came in 23rd (of 79) on the C course (11th overnight) and 8th on vets handicap.

    Another pair you may know: Alastair Marshall (formerly MAROC) ran with son Douglas and came 13th out of 58 on the B course.

    Just shows how fit we orienteers are, compared to the average mountain marathoner.

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.
