At the 202nd Braemar Gathering last Saturday, the long distance races had great showings from orienteers:
– Hill Race (Ladies) – 1st Naomi Lang (GRAMP), 2nd Tessa Hill (EUOC)
– Hill Race (Open) – 1st Peter Hodkinson (NOC), 2nd Graham Gristwood (FVO), 3rd Sasha Chepelin (EUOC), 5th Alex Carcas (EUOC)
– Hill Race (Ladies Veterans) – 3rd Marianne Lang (GRAMP)
– Two Mile Handicap (Open) – 1st Alex Carcas (EUOC)
Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were present, along with the Prince of Wales and the Princess Royal.
Congratulations to the race winners … who are clear evidence that orienteers are just as fit as the specialist hillrunners!
