Jon Duncan Junior Deeside Cup 2017 – rankings after Sluie

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASluie (JD)2C points have been calculated and added to the mix – overall  rankings after 6 events.

Well done to Oli Robertson, Reuben Cole, Robert Prince, Sam Griffin, Patrick Lang, Emily Robertson, Morven Farquharson and Josie Gomersall for leading or being in the top 3 of their age classes. Still 2 more events to go though so don’t relax just yet as the others may sneak up behind you over the coming months.

Just to remind you…. any Junior from Gramp or Maroc is automatically entered into the (JD)2C. You win points by running in any of the 9 nominated local Level C races listed below, with a sliding scale depending on your course and how well you do.

To try and keep things as fair as possible, only half points are awarded to shadowed competitors which is why we ask you to declare this when entering.

  • 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

GJOstandrews150Well done to GJOs Dara Tivendale, Morven Farquharson, Isobel Anderson, Kirsty Farquharson, Duncan Will, Douglas Walmsley, Mairi Walmsley and Alex Lang for holding it together at Wood of Easter Clune over the weekend and not being phased by stiff competition from Maroc and MOR.

They ran in courses varying from White to Light Green and for many this would have been their first taste of  major competion. 264 points total gave them 3rd place overall and they also boosted their (JD)2C scores at the same time. An excellent day all round!
