The AWPR Three 24/8/19

We’ve taken a leaf out of STAG’s book and are planning 3 events in one day on Saturday 24th of August  (Bank Holiday weekend in Englandshire) all linked by the AWPR.

Areas:  A bit of everything…
Dunnottar (forest avoiding the slopes and really nettly bits!) – Westhill (classic suburban area with lots of controls and changes of direction packed into a small area) –
Balmedie (sand dunes)

One sprint course on each area approximately Orange standard.
Winning times of 15-20 minutes but everyone is welcome even if you can’t run like the wind. If you know you’re slow, just aim to start as early as possible as course closing times will be enforced today so that the AWPR3 Circus can roll on to the next venue.

Cost
Adults £4.00 per event, Juniors £2.00 per event
Whole day discount Adults £10.00, Juniors £5.00

EEE: It would really help us plan ahead if you could drop us an email asap to say you intend to come so we can set up the computing database and know how many maps to print. Please send an email to grampoc@gmail.com by 21:00 Friday 23rd with AWPR Three in the title your name(s) and which event(s) you’d like to enter. By using the Early Email Entry system there’s no obligation to run and no money required up front. Thanks.

BBQ/picnic at Balmedie to finish the day. Bring your own food and drink.

for you!

COURSE CLOSES 12:30

what3words: bystander.spark.logic     Streetmap


WESTHILL  2.1km 5m(!) climb

From AWPR take A944 turning to Westhill, past Tesco (loo/lunch stop) and
then second left signposted for Westhill Industrial Estate and marked
with O signs.
Follow Enterprise Drive round to the right, past Technip and
Schlumberger offices and look for an O sign pointing right past a row of
one storey industrial units to the parking area.


BALMEDIE  2.5km 85m climb
Orange standard course on paths and dunes. Fun at the seaside to round the day off in those lovely undulating dunes but again full leg cover advised against marram grass if you want to leave the paths to cut corners.
