Many thanks to GRAMP’s own Christian Horner (aka David Esson) who not only got his head around the team age categories but also successfully managed us all up into teams and came back up from Aberdeen to cheer us all out and in on Sunday despite not running himself. All photos were taken by him with his iPhone while standing in the pits trying to keep track of us all.

One thought on “Scottish Championships 2018

  1. Love the photos. Great day at Burghead/Roseisle. Best performance of the day award definitely goes to Kevin R. for anchoring home your team into an impressive 2nd place. Great run, Kevin (seriously.) You need to share your training regime on Attackpoint…

    Bob D. has been a faithful servant of Gramp for many years, and has run so well in many relays for the club, including SRC2018. So I think we need to have a whip round to get some dosh together and buy him a Gramp O-top. I’ll stick in a few quid. I’m sure it will streamline him to run faster 🙂 (Just joking, guys)

If you can’t make any of these events or prefer to avoid others for 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. Visit our MapRun page for instructions and a list of maps.
Or do one of our Temporary Orienteering Courses if we’ve got one out at the moment – see the TOC post for info.

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT EVENT? NEED A FIX NOW?

Then try a Permanent Orienteering Course in a local forest or park or try one of our Street O maps for a taste of urban O.
