Yippeeeeee!   It’s all systems go here at GMC HQ and we’re making final preparations.
Please make sure you check the updated version of the info/rules/kit list (updated 8/10/21)

ENTRIES NOW CLOSED AND WAITING LIST IN OPERATION
Here’s the link though if you want to check out the opposition or look for friends to tap up for a brew and a blether at the overnight camp: SiEntries


Pairs £115 or Solo £57.50
Course A ~57k 2300m over 2 days
Course B ~47k 1900m over 2 days
Course C ~37k 1500m over 2 days

Information, Rules and Kit List (updated 8/10/21)
Covid declaration form (added 21/10/21) all competitors and helpers must complete this form individually a day or so before the event and no later than 19:00 Friday 5th

You’ll see we’ve rebranded ever so slightly to acknowledge the year’s delay but other than that (fingers crossed please people) it’s shaping up for another great weekend of friendly rivalry and fun.

GMC HQ will be based at Crathie Hall on the north side of the River Dee, opposite Balmoral, where we’ll register you early on Saturday morning and take your kit bags for transportation to the overnight campsite while you do the easy bit yomping through some spectacular scenery to join us. Part of your course will be medium technicality orienteering, the rest MM style navigation.
There will definitely be portaloos at the campsite but no genny so bring extra torch power.
Then the whole process reverses on Sunday via some different but equally spectacular scenery to get back to Crathie Hall. Although there are prizes up for grabs we probably won’t be allowed to have a prize-giving inside and it’s too much to expect a heatwave that time of year so we’ll have to think of a different way this year – apres-GMC Zoom Party anyone?
