We misinterpreted the messages about “Guides” and “car parks” and weren’t expecting a very well supported open air market going on full swing in the Guides’ field.

Well, who would have thought all that mud, marsh, bog and assorted wet stuff would have produced so many excited, grinning faces? We’re a weird bunch! It’s been a very strange few weeks as what was supposed to have been a simple little local event firstly attracted folk from far, far further afield than we’dContinue reading “Glen Dye snaps and thoughts”
Thank you for everyone who attended today. We were very lucky with the weather. Special thanks go to Rachel (Organiser) and Pete (Planner) for putting on a great event. This was our first relatively larger event since Lockdown was eased, and also our first proper effort using the new SI Equipment, so I hope thingsContinue reading “Glen Dye Results 11/10/20”
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”

It was great to see so many old friends again tonight, tempted out for a run despite the weather threatening to dump on us big time. Thanks for being game guineapigs and joining the MapRun Tribe.

ResultsMapRun results/RouteGadget I’ve tried to adjust the times for those who were affected by number 8 being in the wrong position by looking at the traces on RouteGadget to see who obviously spent minutes wandering back and forth.

Results Woohoo! We’re back in business with a near-normal event today in the southern part of Hazlehead thanks to David Esson.
