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. (I’m told the Vets have now decided to compete in injuries instead: “I’ll see your calf strain and raise you a hamstring! Ha!”) Results  Splits My apologies in advanceContinue reading “Seaton Park and Hillhead 24/9/14 Autumn Urban Sprint Results”

Tyrebagger Level C 21/9/14 Results

Well, I was fully expecting a very quiet, slow day as loads of folk were away taking advantage of the long Aberdeen weekend but we had 75 competitors in the end to save my day. Thanks to my team of helpers for making things run very smoothly – David E, Anne Hickling, Oonagh, Jayne, HelenContinue reading “Tyrebagger Level C 21/9/14 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. Comments from George: David Kirk had a failed brikke, Norman Liley & Naomi Lang estimated time for first leg as Start control did not register, and our David did it on his bike.Continue reading “Duthie Park & Ferryhill Results 3-9-14 Autumn Urban Sprint”

Templars Park – Wed 27th – Results

Results We can’t claim sole credit for the idea – I remember a similar version (without the Linear part) being put on by our Pres some years ago. With any new format, it’s tricky to know how people will pick up the idea. Unfortunately some people thought that the Invisible Score controls could be pickedContinue reading “Templars Park – Wed 27th – Results”

Scolty SS 30/7/14 Results

Better late than never…  Results (I enjoyed my run round Scolty but couldn’t help feeling there was something missing from Paul’s courses…..?

Tollohill SS 23/7/14 Results

George tells me it was a pleasant evening, without the oppressive heat some people had suffered. Sunshine would have been nice but you can’t have everything!

A real sockwringer @ Haddo House 16/7/14 – Results

Thanks to the 20 brave souls who raced around the grounds of Haddo Country Park during an electrical storm.  Calum McLeod was so quick he didn’t get wet, everyone else was drookit.  George was pleased that a well-timed lightning flash illuminated his map in gloomy conditions! Typically it was bright sun by the time weContinue reading “A real sockwringer @ Haddo House 16/7/14 – Results”

Glen Dye SS 9/7/14 Results

Results from last night hot off the press for you. If you weren’t there you missed a beautiful evening, scampering up and down blaeberry studded slopes and paddling through crystal clear burns, trying to spot the next control silhouetted in the shafts of sunlight streaming between the pines. It really was idyllic – just wishContinue reading “Glen Dye SS 9/7/14 Results”

Dunnottar 11/6/14 – Results

I hope everyone enjoyed Dunnottar last week, not too muddy or slippy and the nettles weren’t so bad if you thought about all the Peacock butterflies they are supporting. Did anybody stop for a bit of bodging? I liked their smoky-wood-shavings-midge-repellent idea (is that what it was for?). Here are the finalised results (thanks for your patience),Continue reading “Dunnottar 11/6/14 – Results”

Hazelhead Summer Series 28/5/14 Results

Results Well, that was a blast of fun thanks to Iain McLeod’s cunning use of two maps at different scales to keep us on our toes. What’s the verdict on Doug’s new map? Makes the old campsite area feel quite different at that scale? And hands up who got tricked into running across that nice openContinue reading “Hazelhead Summer Series 28/5/14 Results”

Cheyne Hill Summer Series 21-5-14 Results

Results   If you spot any spelling mistakes then tell please. Congratulations to those who bit the bullet and tried out ‘The Technical Twist’ – a section of the course was printed without any background map so they had to rely on bearings and pacing to get to the next control.

Tyrebagger 14/5/14 Summer Series Results

Well done to all the brave souls who had a go at the Map Memory.

2014 Forest Sprint Series Fridays

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!

The weather turned wild and wet about 3pm, and it was raining as we left Aberdeen to drive up the valley.

Balmedie DNC 15 Jan 2014 – Results

Well, the weather was mild (9°C) but there was wetness in the air which dampened the outsides (but not the spirits) of the 40 people who ran at Balmedie.  Tricky courses on a moonless night…  No 154 in particular was hard, and the prizes go to those who persevered (eh, Ali?). Many thanks to DennisContinue reading “Balmedie DNC 15 Jan 2014 – Results”

Balmedie Pre-Xmas O: Sun 8th Dec

Rob provided us with some devilish “Precision-Xmas” courses, with a strong “Pre-O” or “Trail-O” element (but not on any trails…).  Six of the controls on the long course were clusters of controls, and you had to pick the one that you thought was in the exact centre of the circle and fitted the control descriptionContinue reading “Balmedie Pre-Xmas O: Sun 8th Dec”
