Club Championships 2021 – Lanton

The results from todays Club Championships at Lanton are HERE

There were 2 Championship categories today – Young Junior and Open. Well done to Seb Darlow and Cathy Rooney for their respective wins. The results show everyone’s handicap after their name. There was also a 60 minute Score which a few folk took advantage of.

Thanks also to Ian and Eileen Maxwell for organising/planning etc.

Upcoming events

We are planning 5 events over the next few weeks but for the moment these are restricted to club members only. This isn’t ideal but is the current agreement between Scottish Orienteering and SportScotland which allows us to have any orienteering events. Members will be emailed details of all the events. All events are strictly pre-entry, do not turn up on the day without having submitted an entry form.

We hope to welcome back non-members before too long. Remember that there are permanent courses and MapRun courses for you to enjoy meantime.

MapRun courses

Whilst we can’t get together for any organised orienteering remember that there are still virtual MapRun courses available. These are open to everyone, not just club members, see the information under the MapRun and Permanent Courses tab above.

Selkirk Hill MapRun courses

The 2 Selkirk Hill MapRun courses used on Boxing Day are now available for everyone. In the MapRunF App download either the Selkirk Hill Score or Selkirk Hill Scatter plus the corresponding map below, although they’re the same controls so either map would suffice. If the “Events Near Me” link in MapRunF doesn’t work use “Select Event” and then UK – Scotland – Borders – Roxburgh Reivers….

Selkirk Hill 30 Minute Score

Selkirk Hill Scatter course (30 controls)

Boxing Day

We held our first Boxing Day activity in 1990 so are celebrating 30 years in 2020. By necessity it’s going to be different so this year will be a virtual “MapRun” on Selkirk Hill. See the details on the Upcoming Events link.

Teviothead local event 28/11/20

Results from our event at Teviothead on Saturday are HERE

Thanks to John for putting out, waking up and collecting all the controls. Big thanks and a well done to Kate for her first event as Planner, not the easiest of events to plan for your first one but Kate gave us all a challenge with no easy or obvious route choices. Rob helped at Registration allowing me to get a run this time 🙂
