Race The Castles

sashaRtC Part 1: From the serious athlete having fun pitting himself against the world’s elite to someone just having serious fun, all the Gramps who travelled down to Edinburgh and Stirling over the weekend had a great time in the urban legs of RtC. Sasha is collecting international scalps like there’s no tomorrow especially with a stormer at Stirling coming 20th – the results list reads Denmark, Switzerland, Denmark, Austria, Scotland, Scotland… Norway…. Belgium…. Italy….. GRAMP. Looks great!!

Carolyn McLeod is also doing really well currently lying 4th overall in Womens Vets and she almost admitted to enjoying the urban orienteering! Let’s see what she can do in her preferred terrain this weekend. (No pressure, Carolyn! Good luck!)

RtC Part 2: Big thanks to the clubs involved down south for kicking RtC off in style and we look forward to welcoming everyone up north soon for Balmoral and Forvie.
