For British Orienteering Squad Support Fund
10 years ago the 10,000m record was truly smashed at Meadowbank Stadium (Edinburgh) by Murray Strain, Scott Fraser and Graeme Ackland each running 200m in turns. All of us are older; some faster, some slower and now it is time to see if we can beat our own ‘World Record’ by going faster than the time of 25:50 that we set in 2005.
The ‘old’ team ran 26:48, and a ‘young team’ of James Ackland, Alex and Freddy Carcas ran 27:19, and the money raised is currently £1320.

Helping with this on a small part of the area need not render you non-competitive for the 6 Day Event race.
