Compass Point Scottish O League
A middle distance race on Saturday and SOL 7 on Sunday, both in the wonderful Culbin Forest. The weekend also incorporated the SOA Junior Inter-Area competition which was won by West. Thanks to Moravian for a great weekend. Results on the Moravian website.
Congratulations to FVO who won the large clubs competition (the Cup) and to Interløpers who won the small clubs (the Trophy) with CLYDE coming second.
Full results and statistics, report below.
Including JEC Spectator Race 3
SOL 6 was also the venue for the Junior European Cup long distance race, so you were able to spectate before your run (with commentary), and then runners on Blue to Black got to run JEC courses themselves. The forest was looking good, and the map had been extended into some excellent new terrain since the last event there.
Results available here and on the Clyde web site.
These events attract between 120-250 runners who can expect good quality terrain, friendly and efficient organisation, pre-marked maps and electronic punching.
Results from Kames, Muirkirk on 21st Aug
The next event will be 6th November at Penicuik, near Edinburgh, details on the ESOC website
Kyle of Lochalsh, 30/31 July
Offered the chance to orienteer twice on the epic Balmacara, a stunningly wild open rocky hillside with distracting views of Skye. Plus an additional event on the Sat evening on the newly mapped area called The Plock, more details...
Profits from the event went to support the Scottish Elite Development Squad.
