Jon Duncan Junior Deeside Cup rankings after Crathes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALatest (JD)2C Rankings after Crathes here.

Well done to:
Hannah and Judith Kuhnel are still joint 3rd in W8
Hannah Will has posted her first score putting her in 5th on W12
Morven Farquharson is lying in 5th place W14 with sister Kirsty not too far behind in 6th
Olivia Coman holding 2nd W16

Fraser Pain is building up an even bigger lead in M8 with Stuart Prince holding steady in 3rd and Jack Pain not far behind in 4th
Douglas Walmsley 3rd in M10
Although missing the first few events, Noah Griffin has now started to notch up some solid results and is lying in 5th place in M12 while brother Sam is also 5th M14. Duncan Will seems to be employing a similar strategy by saving himself for later in the season and has now reached 5th place too.

Jon Duncan Junior Deeside Cup 2018

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWoohoo! Here we go again and battle commences for those much loved (JD)2C trophies.
Rankings following Glen Dye.

Here is the provisional list of events so far and rules. We’re still in the process of getting permissions finalised for the rest and there will be 10 nominated events eventually.
If you enter any of these events you will automatically be included in the (JD)2C rankings so all you need do is get out there. Good luck everyone!

  • The (JD)2C competition will be run over 10 events with the best 5 scores counting for each runner.
  • There will be 5 classes for girls and boys, using the ‘standard’ age classes, i.e.M8, M10, M12, M14, M16, W8, W10, W12, W14, W16
  • Within each event, the Gramp/Maroc Junior who is highest placed for each course scores the  maximum course points: White 200, Yellow 300, Orange 400, Light Green 500, Green 600, Blue 700, Brown 800
  • Points for subsequent runners are calculated using this formula:
    score = [(winner’s time)/(runner’s time)]*(maximum course points)
  • Every effort will be made to provide a White course at each event. However, if this is not possible, the JDC organisers will review how many events will qualify for the M8 and W8 classes.
  • If you are being shadowed or running in a pair, please declare this when you register. You will score half points for your run.
  • The competition aims to provide competition in each age class. Juniors may choose the course
    appropriate to their ability. More difficult courses earn higher points.

Scolty (Level C) 5th November 2017 – Results

Gramp Champs and JD2C Event

We hope you enjoyed running at Scolty.  It’s a hilly and physically tough area in some places, fast in others, and the navigation can be testing – especially near the far start on Hill of Gouach.  The air temperature of 5 degrees felt chilly in the tent, but was pleasant enough on the run.  Cold feet, though! (the forest is pretty wet at the moment).

A big thanks to our officials and helpers.  (Amazing speedy job by the control collectors, BTW.)
