Lovely crisp morning, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves out on the courses, and they certainly enjoyed warming up afterwards with the homemade soup back at the Esson’s house. HHH Hazlehead 2019 Splits.pdf HHH Hazlehead 2019 Results.pdf
Well Murray certainly made us all think all the way round with a couple of exceptionally difficult courses. Chapeau to those who whizzed round in ridiculously quick times and commiserations to those who really struggled on those fiendish long legs. Results Splits RouteGadget
Many thanks to Family Griffin for providing the post-AGM orienteering activity to run off all the delicious food from the night before. They even managed to persuade Father Christmas to take time out from seasonal preparations to lend a hand as roving bonus control 129 worth 30 points and a chocolate from his sock. SlightlyContinue reading “Gramp Post AGM Christmas Score 2nd Dec”
Results Splits RouteGadget Well done to Matt for persevering through wind, rain, sandstorms and 2 waterproofs to get the controls out there for us tonight and the 22 nutters who braved it all – points well earned all round. I’m told there’s video evidence on Maroc’s Facebook page.

Great sprinty course from Sam which kept everyone concentrating right to the end and a fitting finale to this year’s series. Perhaps only to be expected from one of our juniors who is proving to be rather nifty at Urban Sprint races recently coming 2nd at the British Sprint Championships in Bath. Sam says “ThankContinue reading “Urban Series Abz University 19/9/18”
Results Splits The old 3-controls-in-a-straight-line caught one or two folk out tonight or was it just getting too dark to see the map? Must be autumn – had to put the headlights on to get home.
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. I’ve guesstimated a split time for all of us affected by 248 keeling overContinue reading “Urban Series Westburn and Victoria Parks 5/8/18 Results”
Results Everything went well apart from the control on the Tower going for a bit of a walkabout. Do you get tungsten tie wraps?

Results (BBQ without rain – RESULT!! ) Thanks to Tim for squeezing everything into that poor little car and squeezing some fun courses into Templars’ bijou area. Map memory definitely favours the regulars so well done to those relative newcomers brave enough to take it on. Thanks to all our 11* organisers during the series – chocs were handedContinue reading “Templars Park Summer Series Grand Finale 15/8/18”
Results What more can you ask than a lovely sunlit forest with some reasonable technicality? Grateful thanks to Fasque Estates for allowing us to use a different car park from the usual on a Wednesday night which gave the Short course a more pleasant run than is possible from the usual car park, and allowedContinue reading “Glen Dye Summer Series 8/8/18”
A beautiful evening to spend outside … the dry spell resulted in some fast running for some and the heat slowed others down! Many thanks to the control collectors David, Dennis, Bob and Gareth. Results No event next week, but do join us in Glen Dye on 8th August.
Results Nice to see Michaela and Lucie from AUOC, a Belgian family and a few other well-kent runners and occasional visitors to our Summer Series helping to boost the numbers to a very respectable 48 given it’s peak holiday season. Although not wall-to-wall sunshine it was a fine, warm evening but amazingly no midges to bug us –Continue reading “Crathes Summer Series 18/7/18”
Thanks to Bill and Paul for this week’s Tyrebagger event, and Olivia for supplying the refreshments. Who knew bracken was so drought resistant! Results Next week we are at Crathes Castle

OK – the weather did its other usual trick.

Results Thanks to those who braved the weather and came along tonight – lots of comments about the undergrowth but that’s Perwinnes Moss for you. It’s hard to plan ‘interesting’ courses without having to take you into ‘interesting’ places so my philosophy was to embrace the nettles and gorse and jump in with both feet.Continue reading “Summer Series Perwinnes Moss 20/6/18 Results”
Results Despite the slightly inclement weather, it was an enjoyable event at Dunnottar, which was improved significantly by the availability of delicious cake and homemade lemonade from Ailsa who is fundraising for a trip to Nepal with Operation Raleigh. Hopefully more to come in the following weeks! After such a dry spell, it was aContinue reading “Summer Series Dunnottar Woods 13/6/18 Results”
Results Sorry about the delay – Harris and the rest of the Hebrides were just too beautiful to tear ourselves away from in time to find WiFi connection to post last week. Although I’m told that Foggieton was equally sunny so fingers crossed the weather repeats itself for the rest of the Summer Series.
Thanks to all who came along to Countesswells on Wednesday. We enjoyed a short break from the recent heat wave and even had a few spots of rain!

Thak you to Jonathan Smith for planning/organising the Summer Series kick off in his ‘back garden’ (and also for agreeing to take over looking after the club kit very soon I’m told.)

Sprint O is great fun – lots of controls in quick succession in a relatively short distance and fast running alone is no use in this discipline if it’s of the headless chicken variety!

On the night of the “super-moon” there was possibly enough light to complete the courses without using a headtorch!

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.

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”

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.
