Saturday at Glen Fearder, near Braemar, was the Scottish individual championships and attracted a field of over 750 competitors. Conditions on the day were perfect for running – dry and bright but cool - and the setting for the finish and assembly area was more than worthy of a national championships. The courses, planned by Andy Tivendale, were long and physically testing, but with some excellent underfoot conditions making running a pleasure in much of the area. The views from the top of the hill were an excellent excuse to take a breather. The new extension to the map around the early controls provided added interest and seemed to catch out many people with small mistakes.

Sunday’s action moved to Creag Choinnich by Braemar for the Scottish relay championships.

Not so many competitors took up the challenge of the Mountain Bike Orienteering at Scolty on Monday morning.

The sprint race in Banchory on Monday evening provided an excellent spectacle with an arena overlooking the start and finish controls which put competitors under extra pressure. In between, the racing around the streets of Banchory was fast and furious with small hesitations in navigation proving costly in terms of positions. The elite competitors showed what it takes to get to the top in this discipline with a number finding the pressure too much and visiting the wrong control sites.

The final middle distance races on Tuesday were at Inchmarnoch on the south side of the Dee by Cambus o’ May. Inchmarnoch provides an excellent technical challenge with complex moraine features of hills and depressions in low visibility forest. The courses planned by Andy Oliver lived up to expectations. 100% concentration was required to stay in touch with the map and terrain and to pick good lines of running through the rough forest.
