Summer Series Foggieton 5/6/19

Results The hawkeyed planner types noticed that the course lengths were overstated due to the map being 1:7500 and not 1:10000, which the software had been told. So either you were glad the rainforest exploration was a bit shorter than expected, you ran really fast, or you were a Garmin/Planner/Performance person (or all three). ApologiesContinue reading “Summer Series Foggieton 5/6/19”

Results    Splits    Routegadget     Cumulative scores so far A two-hander tonight brought to you by Jonathan Smith who planned and David Esson who ran the event on the ground with a little help from some friends.

Forest Sprint 1 @ Tollohill 10/4/19

Results  Splits RouteGadget (sorry, can’t quite get all controls correctly centred on features but close enough) Many thanks to David Esson for planning at relatively short notice and hope you all enjoyed your scamper around Tollohill.

Gramp Post AGM Christmas Score 2nd Dec

Many thanks to Family Griffin for providing the post-AGM orienteering activity to run off all the delicious food from the night before.

Urban Series Abz University 19/9/18

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”

Urban Series Westburn and Victoria Parks 5/8/18 Results

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”

Urban Series Seaton Park 29/8/18 Results

Thanks to all our 11* organisers during the series – chocs were handedContinue reading “Templars Park Summer Series Grand Finale 15/8/18”

Glen Dye Summer Series 8/8/18

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”

Crathes Summer Series 18/7/18

  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”

Summer Series 27/6/18 Balmedie + BBQ Results

OK – the weather did its other usual trick. By the time I got there (delayed in the infamous A90 roadworks enlivened by Lesley G hanging out of her car window miming “can I have a cuppa?” at me in the campervan as we trundled slowly along) the haar was rapidly developing into a real peaContinue reading “Summer Series 27/6/18 Balmedie + BBQ Results”

Summer Series Perwinnes Moss 20/6/18 Results

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”

Summer Series Dunnottar Woods 13/6/18 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”

Forest Sprint Series 2018 – Weds 11th April to 16th 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 2018 – Weds 11th April to 16th May”

Tyrebagger DNC Results – 31st Jan 2018

On the night of the “super-moon” there was possibly enough light to complete the courses without using a headtorch!  Joe Wright nearly had an opportunity to try that theory out, as he broke his light (and bashed his knee) before even starting.  Fortunately for him, he borrowed a light and his knee didn’t seem toContinue reading “Tyrebagger DNC Results – 31st Jan 2018”
