Tyrebagger DNC Results – 31st Jan 2018

On the night of the “super-moon” there was possibly enough light to complete the courses without using a headtorch!  Joe Wright nearly had an opportunity to try that theory out, as he broke his light (and bashed his knee) before even starting.  Fortunately for him, he borrowed a light and his knee didn’t seem toContinue reading “Tyrebagger DNC Results – 31st Jan 2018”

Balmedie DNC – 17th Jan 2018 – Results

Another delightful night for orienteering … clear, moonless (fantastic views of the constellations), little wind … and even the open sand areas were frozen, so were very fast running.  If you weren’t there you missed a treat. Here are Results and Split times. Routegadget (with Splitsbrowser) is now loaded up – enter your trails (andContinue reading “Balmedie DNC – 17th Jan 2018 – Results”

Raemoir DNC – 3 Jan 2018 – Results

Taking a look at the weather for the rest of the country, we were pretty lucky with the conditions for the DNC race at Raemoir.  We had the most benign evening, with almost no wind, clear skies, a nearly full moon, and temperatures just hovering a degree or so above zero.  That didn’t mean thereContinue reading “Raemoir DNC – 3 Jan 2018 – Results”

Crathes DNC – 6th Dec 2017 – Results

A dry and mild evening for night-O at Crathes  (Thankfully before Storm Caroline arrives). Thanks to Jack G for very pleasant, runnable and enjoyable courses.  Getting to the Start was a bit more challenging than usual, as there were no reflectors to show the way, and no start description either!   I think everyone found itContinue reading “Crathes DNC – 6th Dec 2017 – Results”

Hazlehead DNC 8th Nov 2017 – Results

After the clear frosty evening of 7th Nov, when the northern lights coud be seen all over northern Scotland as far south as Edinburgh, we had a cloudy damp evening for Dave Kirk’s courses at Hazlehead – but nevertheless a large entry.  It was a bit of a middle distance style race, with many controlsContinue reading “Hazlehead DNC 8th Nov 2017 – Results”

Bennachie – Weds 26th July – Results

Our pre-Six Days tune-up event took place at Bennachie on Weds 26th July.  After a wet day (which the planner can vouch for, as he was setting out the controls in the rain!) the sun came out and the evening finished with immaculate blue skies and a terrific sunset. Click here for the results. TheContinue reading “Bennachie – Weds 26th July – Results”

Balmedie – Sun 5th February 2017 – Results

We were taken by surprise a bit by a last-minute Saturday rush to pre-enter this event using the Early Email Entry system.  We’d printed 85 maps based on early indications of the number of EEE’s.  In the end, there were 97 runners.  So well done everyone for getting up off the couch and coming alongContinue reading “Balmedie – Sun 5th February 2017 – Results”

DNC Balmedie – 23/11/16 – Results

Starry, starry night!  Perfect for star-gazing and not so bad for orinteering, either!  Although cold (+1 deg) there was almost no wind, and conditions were excellent for fast running.  The ground frost actually hardened up the open sandy areas, and made them faster than ever before. The EMIT equipment worked well despite the cold.  AllContinue reading “DNC Balmedie – 23/11/16 – Results”

Shooting Greens Event, Sunday 15th November

Here are the Results and Split Times for the local event held on Sunday 15th November, at Shooting Greens, near Feughside. Enter your routes at our Routegadget2 website. I’m afraid it was all rather “mizzly” – misty and drizzly … orienteering in the clouds!  But fortunately it didn’t really rain and the complete lack ofContinue reading “Shooting Greens Event, Sunday 15th November”
