Gordon Community Woodland 2/10/21 – Results

The results from Gordon are HERE

Thanks to everyone who turned out on what was a pretty wet afternoon which was a pity because I put the controls out in the dry and it’s a lovely bit of woodland when the sun is shining. John Tullie blasted round, going generally direct, while others found things tricky. Good to see another Tullie (M5 Wilson) enjoying his Orange course with Dad and Granny.

Special thanks to Pauline, Eb and Cathy who helped collect in controls etc at the end despite being quite wet.

The next club event is at The Hirsel, Coldstream on 13 November.

Darnick Score event 30/6/21

The results from this evening’s Score event with a Twist at Darnick are HERE

The twist was that competitors had to visit controls in a sequence of even and odd number controls. 2 people managed to lose 10 points by having consecutive even number controls, interestingly one person did 110 then 120, the other did 120 then 110. Thanks to Robin for planning and organising a different format plus the lovely sunny evening.

Planner says:

Hope everyone enjoyed their run round Darnick on Wednesday, some fast and furious running and hope the less fast enjoyed it too. Amazed that ANYONE got them all in under 30 minutes – but 5 of you did! – some quick thinking involved. Well done Paul for a very clever solution – perfect economy of effort! Thanks for coming – there was a bit of work to update the map as the vegetation has had a prolific growing season, plus adding the hospital car park to the map made a third by-pass crossing possible – but I think it was worthwhile. And the weather was perfect!


Sprint 4 results: Heronhill South

The results from the final sprint are HERE

Thanks to everyone for turning out for the final sprint of the series – we were lucky with the weather after a day of sunshine and showers. The new map and area seemed to go down well and your nice comments were appreciated. When you’re studying the splits, only the first control was gaffled so by control 2 you’d all done the same distance. Thanks again to John for the use of the area, as well as helping to collect in some controls. Also thanks to Lorna for (wo)manning the Start for me.

The club committee need to plan our next few events but we’ll obviously let everyone know in advance.

Sprint 3: Gala Policies

The results from this evening’s sprint at Gala Policies are HERE.

Thanks to Kate for planning and to Robin for organising/putting out the controls.

Remember that next week the 4th and final sprint of the series is on TUESDAY, not the usual Wednesday.

Results from Sprint 2: Selkirk Hill

The results from this evening’s sprint at Selkirk Hill are HERE.

Note that there were 2 courses, the same apart from the first couple of controls.

Version 2 of the results is now available with both sets of results amalgamated: HERE

Thank you for supporting RR latest Spring Sprint event at Selkirk Hill. It was great to see another fine turn-out.   I hope you enjoyed your run despite the Baltic temperatures. Most folk seemed to finish with a smile on their face and I thank you for your generous and positive comments the end of your runs.  Thanks also to those who offered to collect in controls.  As usual it was a RR team effort with Lindsey at the helm organising the technical bits, Pauline ensuring the Covid-19 risk assessment was completed and Robin helping to collect in controls at the end.
The idea of the ‘gaffled’ controls was to try break up any precession of runners .  Not sure how well this worked but it added interest to the start.  Hope to see you at Gala Hill next week.
