MapRunF: how to amend your results for missing controls

For the geeky amongst you here’s an advantage to using MapRunF rather than MapRun: you can review, amend and re-submit your splits to include controls that didn’t ping for whatever reason. On the grounds that many folk are self-timing and will be running straight through the control sites rather than waiting for a ping, I’mContinue reading “MapRunF: how to amend your results for missing controls”

Urban Sprint Cove 2nd Sept Results

ResultsMapRun results/RouteGadget I’ve tried to adjust the times for those who were affected by number 8 being in the wrong position by looking at the traces on RouteGadget to see who obviously spent minutes wandering back and forth. Later starters were tipped off and self-timers would have been blissfully unaware anyway so rather than tryContinue reading “Urban Sprint Cove 2nd Sept Results”

Those of you who are British Orienteering members will have received an email this morning (17/3/20) announcing the suspension of all orienteering activities with immediate effect on the advice of PHE, WHO and others.

CompassSport Cup/Trophy Heats and Scottish Middle Distance Champs 2020

Well done to the 5 Gramps who went down to Errochty over the weekend to fly the flag for the club (metaphorically, don’t think they actually took a banner) in the CompassSport Trophy for smaller clubs. I’ve seen the maps and looks like Sam & Tim Griffin, Sam & Lesley Gomersall and Bob Daly betweenContinue reading “CompassSport Cup/Trophy Heats and Scottish Middle Distance Champs 2020”

Scottish Night Champs 2020

Congratulations to those Gramps who travelled up to take part in the Scottish Night Champs held at Findhorn last weekend. Looks like an intriguing mix of urban/forest/dunes judging from RouteGadget so it’ll be interesting to hear what they thought of it. Did it encourage a few more folk to have a go than would doContinue reading “Scottish Night Champs 2020”

DNC Scolty 19/2/20

Hogmany Hangover Handicap 2/1/2020 @ Hazlehead Park

Great to see so many enthusiastic juniors charging round the Yellow (with more than a touch of sibling rivalry going on) and some old regulars coming out of the woodwork for some fresh air and a different challenge on the Score. First time I’ve been thanked for making someone’s brain ache – because “it tookContinue reading “Hogmany Hangover Handicap 2/1/2020 @ Hazlehead Park”

AGM 2019 roundup, Gramp Champs and other successes

The hot news from the AGM is the unanimous decision to swap from Emit to SI Air. Our old Emit kit has served us well over the years but is getting tired and outdated and needing more and more TLC (see above) so time for an upgrade. The future is definitely contactless punching and althoughContinue reading “AGM 2019 roundup, Gramp Champs and other successes”

Thanks to Dave Kirk for spending a lot of time tramping round Duthie Park and Ferryhill noting down numbers and details on various objects for us to collect on today’s Treas-O-re Hunt.

Rachel ha ganado tercero W50 en El Trofeo de Las Pueblos Blancos

Three events of very different natures, in or close to 3 of the typical Pueblos Blancos in Andalucia, go to make up the competition. Typical Spanish organisation which means very relaxed but it all comes together in the nick of time even if it means some nifty improvisation like using oranges straight off a treeContinue reading “Rachel ha ganado tercero W50 en El Trofeo de Las Pueblos Blancos”
