Scottish Orienteering Championships 2021

On Sunday 13th June following months of uncertainty we were delighted to welcome participants across Scotland to Scottish Championships hosted by ESOC at Craig a Barns, Perthshire. The sun shone over this fabulous terrain and everyone was treated to a special return to championship orienteering.

A huge thank you to all the volunteers who made the event possible with special gratitude to Margaret Dalgleish and Jayne MacGregor for their exemplary organising of the event under difficult circumstances, Roger Scrutton for his planning of courses and Sarah Dunn for controlling the event. As always there are a long list of volunteers who put in considerable efforts to make the event happen on the day but also behind the scenes before and after, we extend our considerable thanks to you.

NOTE FROM THE CONTROLLER, SARAH DUNN: Unfortunately, control 114 was incorrectly placed on a crag 20m to the north west of the boulder where it should have been sited. This affected competitors on the light green, blue and black courses. An official protest was made by a competitor on M60L. To make the results as fair as possible we have removed the split for the ingoing leg to 114 from each of these courses. The outgoing legs should not have been affected by the error, however, one competitor on M60L failed to find the control, so for that class only we have also removed the outgoing leg from 114. The results for M60L are now recorded as a separate course (BlueM60). Removal of the outgoing leg from other classes would have unfairly penalised runners who accurately navigated the following leg, compared with those that lost time there.

Congratulations to all our Scottish Champions of 2021 and those receiving our Scottish Orienteering Championship medals. We hope when restrictions allow we can present your trophies and give you the opportunity to stand on a podium. For now, a virtual applause is all we do!
