Jon Duncan Junior Deeside Cup 2015


Rules and events list below.  Any questions? Contact Trevor Ricketts of MAROC or Marianne Lang of GRAMP or ask at an event.

You’re automatically entered into the competition if you’re a GRAMP or MAROC Junior, all you need do now is make sure you get along to as many events as you can this year.  Good Luck!

In case you didn’t already know, the Jon Duncan Junior Deeside Cup is named after an honorary GRAMP and ex-British Team member, Jon Duncan, who is now enjoying semi-retirement from the international orienteering scene growing beetroot in Norway. (Honest!)


The (JD)2C competition will be run over 10 x Level C events with the best 6 (TBC) scores counting for each runner.

There will be 6 classes for girls and boys, using the ‘standard’ age classes, i.e. M/W8, M/W10, M/W12, M/W14, M/W16.

Within each event, the Gramp/Maroc Junior who is highest placed for each course scores the maximum course points:
White 200
Yellow 300
Orange 400
Light Green 500
Green 600
Blue 700
Brown 800

Points for subsequent runners are calculated using this formula:
score = [(winner’s time)/(runner’s time)]*(maximum course points)

Every effort will be made to provide a White course at each event. However, if this is not possible, the JDC organisers will review how many events will qualify for the M8 and W8 classes

If you are being shadowed or running in a pair, please declare this when you register. You will score half points for your run

The competition aims to find the best Gramp / Maroc junior in each age class. Juniors may choose the course appropriate to their ability.
