Scottish orienteers claim medals at Simplyhealth Great Stirling XCountry
The Simplyhealth XCountry moved from Holyrood in Edinburgh to a new location at Stirling Golf Club. Orienteers (running under their Athletic clubs) had some outstanding runs including Megan Keith (INVOC) and Pippa Carcas (INT) taking Silver and Bronze respectively in the U17 Girls Inter District.
Two Moravians were running in the U15 Girls. Six of the Scottish Student team were orienteers with four of the six counting and there were also good performances by Fanni Gyurko (11th) in the Inter- Districts, Denmark’s Maja Alm competed in the Elite Women’s 6K (18th) and Kris Jones, a late selection to the team, was 3rd Brit home in the Men’s 8K in 24.14, 12th place in a very strong international field from the USA and Europe.
Colin Matheson and Graham Gristwood thank EventScotland for their VIP invitation – it was an excellent opportunity for networking with senior figures in Visit Scotland, EventScotland, sportscotland, Stirling Council and Simplyhealth.
