To try and make best use of the darker nights, the DNC will start and finish a bit earlier than in previous years and also run closer to Xmas/New Year break to squeeze in a couple more. Helen Rowlands is the DNC Coordinator for GRAMP. We have planners for all the GRAMP events but if you think you can lend a hand at registration or by collecting controls she’d still like to hear from you. Contact her using this contact form.
Two courses 3km and 5km at TD5/Green standard as far as possible. No concessions to the dark. There may also be an additional Orange in a couple of our less technical/scary areas for really junior Juniors and beginners to be able to have a go too. Check the details on the DNC blog.

As this is a shared series, we operate a separate blog with full list of dates, venues, travel maps, final results and chat – DNC Blog. Once it kicks off in earnest check there rather than here for up to date details like snow reports.
There are lavish prizes for the best M/W Junior and Senior in each Cup and a host of frivolous prizes for things like the Toughest of the Tough for the most gruelling courses and Best/Worst Mistake. Seriously though, this is one of the most competitive leagues around and worth turning out for if only for the challenge of finding your way around areas you thought you knew pretty well until someone turned the lights out!

Great turn out for first night – 39 on a somewhat drench evening!
Congrats to Matthew for his win on the short and to Joe for absolutely creaming the opposition o note long. Winning by 26 minutes…
Will post results tomorrow, too late now.
Thanks Jon. A great physical challenge to start us off. All the best ingredients for this time of year… wet bracken, wet marshes, wet everything. Keep it comin’. Dan.
Carlogie tonight – I’ll be there from 1730 or so. Both courses fine and runnable – lots of bracken but dead and not thick (just wet!).
See you there – Jon M
