Our Urban Sprint O series is being kicked off for us by Eric Lovie at Cove Bay. One course 3.1km ¬† Orange/Medium standard with an option to shorten it to 1.7km (That’s as the crow flies – actual distance covered in urban is about 1.5 times further) SI controls will be used. We can lendContinue reading “Urban Sprint @ Cove Bay 10/8/22”

Westburn & Victoria Parks Urban Sprint 22/9/21 Results

Wow! Never seen the Westburn so burny as tonight or the grass so waterlogged. Almost needed a snorkel in parts. Thanks to Sam and Tim for doing the soggy honours tonight. https://www.sportident.co.uk/results/GRAMP/2021/WestburnUrbanSprintResults I also uploaded to RouteGadget to see what it would make of the voided section for the road crossing and seems to copeContinue reading “Westburn & Victoria Parks Urban Sprint 22/9/21 Results”

Westhill Urban Sprint 15/9/21 Results

Thanks to Oonagh and Donald for organising the Westhill leg of the series. Donald is so taken by the ease of making courses and timing etc that he’s going to introduce his DofE group to MapRun. Results – not sure but I think the folk recorded as mispunches are self-declared rather than just failing toContinue reading “Westhill Urban Sprint 15/9/21 Results”

Cove Urban Sprint 8/9/21 Results

Seems like everyone enjoyed themselves this evening even if one or two got fooled by incoming texts or emails making them think they had hit a control when they heard a ping. Others said they couldn’t hear the pings very well at all but we’re reliably informed that bluetoothed ear phones solve that problem –Continue reading “Cove Urban Sprint 8/9/21 Results”

Aberdeen University Urban MapRun 30th Sept 2020 Results

Here’s the results from tonight’s MapRun Event. Great to see so many folk turn up on such after such a wet day, although it did stop raining in the end. Shortest distance covered was 3.1km (I think I measured the shortest route would be 3km) whilst others got more km for their money, some runningContinue reading “Aberdeen University Urban MapRun 30th Sept 2020 Results”

Urban Series Westburn and Victoria Parks 5/8/18 Results

In’t technology brilliant?! Helps us to “void” leg 10 – 11 or in other words, subtract the time it took you to cross the road but throws a real spanner in the works when it decides to die on us mid-event.
