Dunnottar Woods Summer Series 27/5/15 Results

Knees and shins stopped tingling yet from the stingers? I’m told nettles are good for osteo arthritis but don’t think it works in a preventative way unfortunately so unless you’re unlucky enough to already be suffering then last night’s exposure won’t have counted for anything – apart from hard-earned GAC points of course.

Results

The Long Tech course was replaced by an ‘Aberdonian Linear’ which entailed as many loops of a 2.4km course as possible in 45 mins but forfeit all points if over the time limit.

****UPDATE**** Those stingers are famous BTW – used by Nick Nairn on Landward this week to create a Scottish pesto along with the ramsons (wild garlic). Some lovely shots of Dunnottar Woods in the sunshine.

  1. I enjoyed the Aberdonian Linear. My second round splits were faster than first time round despite heavier legs (except for the one up to the top of the hill) – difference even straightforward navigation makes? I did wonder if could have done second round from memory … not sure. Also means perhaps I should have gone for one last control … Helen

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.
