Remember that the sprint series kicks off on Wednesday evening at Traquair. For this sprint event only we’ll also have a Yellow course. This is because we already have the maps printed from our postponed event there in December.
In 2016, for a trial year, this series will run for a calendar year instead of the previous autumn/spring period. (This first series will however include the SoSOL held in October 2015, which was the only one before Christmas)
These are already registered in the series:
1. 11 Oct 2015 ESOC Hopetoun House, S Queensferry
2. 24 Jan 2016 EUOC Holyrood Park, Edinburgh
3. 21 Feb AYROC Kaimes, Muirkirk
4. 28 Feb ELO Lothian Edge, Dunbar
5. 17 April SOLWAY Drumlanrig, Dumfries
6. 15 May INT Calder Wood, Livingston
7. 6 Nov ESOC Penicuik Estate.
Provisional course lengths and climb have been added today.
Please make sure you read the event information for Traquair beforehand – the Starts window is slightly shorter than usual and there’s a twist to the harder course.
