Aberdeen Uni Urban Sprint 30/9/15

Wow! That was a blast! Never-ending route choices and plenty of twists and turns not to mention furkling in bushes and round the back of buildings in the dark towards the end. A big thank you to our guest planner, Janne, for cramming so much fun onto a piece of A4 paper. Funny how manyContinue reading “Aberdeen Uni Urban Sprint 30/9/15”

Urban Sprint Hillhead Campus 23/9/15 Results

Nice to see lots of new faces from AUOC. Bit of an in-at-the-deep end experience for some with 3km packed into the Hillhead area by using a double-sided map (although some old hands didn’t listen to that bit of the instructions…!) but some very good results none the less. That’s what young legs do forContinue reading “Urban Sprint Hillhead Campus 23/9/15 Results”

Urban Sprint Balgownie Wed 16/9/15

Results  Splits   Ranking points “That was quite good considering I don’t like pavements!” Another convert to urban/sprint orienteering?  Hope so. Thanks to Rachel Salway and her team for rescuing no 12 from a bin later on during the race. Better turn out than last year but still the least popular venue of the series andContinue reading “Urban Sprint Balgownie Wed 16/9/15”

Templars – 26/08/2015 – Results

Thank-you everyone for coming along and giving Poker-O a go. I know it all sounded a bit daunting at the start “what, no map?!”, but I think all those brave enough to try it enjoyed themselves. Maybe even found a few delicious raspberries en-route? The medium course was very short (long story) – but packedContinue reading “Templars – 26/08/2015 – Results”

Countesswells SS Results 13/8/15

Bit of a thin turn out again for Countesswells – folk still on hols? not recovered yet from 6 Days? We did host a training session for the Junior regional Orienteering Squad though who traveled over from Templars Park, where they are having a training camp, to go round the Long Tech with a trainingContinue reading “Countesswells SS Results 13/8/15”

Perwinnes Moss – 15/07/15 – Results

Results from the Perwinnes Moss. Those who weren’t there missed a glorious evening of sunshine (and fantastic views from NE corner). The newly updated map was a joy to use … but perhaps mid July is not the best time of year for an event here, given the height of undergrowth! Many thanks to Chris,Continue reading “Perwinnes Moss – 15/07/15 – Results”

Balmedie Results – 17 June 2015

Congratulations to all brave enough to defy the mind boggling, leg sapping, shoe filling dunes of Balmedie. I am glad to report that all returned and enjoyed a hearty BBQ afterwards. Many thanks to Ailsa for the courses and to Murray for sorting out the electronic gadgetry that was playing up … results HERE. ThisContinue reading “Balmedie Results – 17 June 2015”

Dunnottar Woods Summer Series 27/5/15 Results

Knees and shins stopped tingling yet from the stingers? I’m told nettles are good for osteo arthritis but don’t think it works in a preventative way unfortunately so unless you’re unlucky enough to already be suffering then last night’s exposure won’t have counted for anything – apart from hard-earned GAC points of course. Results TheContinue reading “Dunnottar Woods Summer Series 27/5/15 Results”

Tyrebagger Summer Series 20/5/15 Results

Round 2 of the GAC posed a bit more of a challenge with much rougher terrain and more intricate navigation required for some controls (“that tree!”) but, hey, that’s the whole point of the Challenge! Well done to all who got round and thanks to the walking wounded who helped collect controls, Bob Daly andContinue reading “Tyrebagger Summer Series 20/5/15 Results”

Scotly Forest Sprint 8/5/15 Results

CompassPoint SOL4 – Glen Dye – 3rd May

The fabulous Glen Dye area was the setting for CompassPoint SOL4 As you’ll have noticed, there was not much dappled sunshine flowing between the trees (as in the photo) … something was flowing all right, but the wet stuff not the sunshine. Congratulations and thanks to you all for participating and helping in such drenchingContinue reading “CompassPoint SOL4 – Glen Dye – 3rd May”

Tollohill Forest Sprint Fri 24-4-15 Results

Results Overall results after 3 events Congratulations to Keith Yardley for taking on a Sprint as his first go at planning – plenty of controls and twists and turns saw us all stopping dead at one point or another asking “Which path am I on?

Forest Sprint Series 2015 Fridays 10th April to 15th May

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! You really have to look closely at the map, make snap decisions about route choice, execute them quickly and cleanly whileContinue reading “Forest Sprint Series 2015 Fridays 10th April to 15th May”

Scolty DNC 25/2/15 Results

Glen Dye DNC 11th Feb results

A beautiful clear, cold evening, about -2 degrees, no wind, no moon, wonderful star-gazing weather! A good entry enjoyed some of the faster terrain in Glen Dye.  The long course descended down through the heather slopes of the western semi-open/rough open moorland.  First time it’s been used at night we think.

Countesswells Score event results – 7th Dec 2014

Countesswells woods was looking pretty as a picture in the winter sunshine, with a dusting of snow which fell in the small hours.  It was a bit muddy underfoot on some of the paths, but otherwise faster running than in the summer when the bracken is up.  Several of you sped round the controls atContinue reading “Countesswells Score event results – 7th Dec 2014”

Aberdeen Uni Autumn Urban Sprint 1/10/14 Results

Wow! AUOC are really going from strength to strength with 11 runners and Janne busy coaching and encouraging after putting out controls as tonight’s planner. A great wee course making good use of the complex alleyways and extra vertical dimension offered by Aberdeen Uni which foxed many scouting round at the bottom of steps insteadContinue reading “Aberdeen Uni Autumn Urban Sprint 1/10/14 Results”

Seaton Park and Hillhead 24/9/14 Autumn Urban Sprint Results

From famine last week to feast this week as the students are back in town and upping the competition levels considerably as well as the numbers.

Ha!”) Results  Splits My apologies in advanceContinue reading “Seaton Park and Hillhead 24/9/14 Autumn Urban Sprint Results”

Westburn & Victoria Parks 10/9/14 Autumn Urban Sprint Results

You were warned to expect a dizzying course! Luckily it seems everyone rose to the challenge and enjoyed Pete’s zig-zagging 3km of confusing changes of direction and route choices in such a small area. The printouts we gave you are the raw splits, the times shown on these results include the voided leg (ooer!) betweenContinue reading “Westburn & Victoria Parks 10/9/14 Autumn Urban Sprint Results”

Duthie Park & Ferryhill Results 3-9-14 Autumn Urban Sprint

A big thank you to the Essons’ combined efforts to successfully kick start the 2014 Autumn Urban Series at DP&F last Wednesday.
