East of Scotland Championships, Duns Wood

The last proper race of the current orienteering season was the East of Scotland Championships held in lovely sunshine at Duns Wood on Sunday. The map lacks a bit of detail so the scope for the technical courses was limited, but overall it was an enjoyable run and there were some nice bits of woodland.

Roxburgh Reivers had a good turnout and came away with several of the trophies.  Lindsey Knox secured the W50 trophy for a 5th time (it’s cost a fortune in engraving and replacing the too-small base !), John Tullie won M55 convincingly and Barry Veitch on M40 bagged his first ever orienteering trophy.

There were runners-up certificates for Fiona Forrest, Fiona Johnston and Pauline McAdam. Cathy Rooney and Keith Murray seem to be benefiting from the club coaching sessions and both finished 3rd on their respective classes.  The first 3 in each class were presented with a laminated “medal” in colors approximating Gold, Silver and Bronze (i.e. Yellow, Pale Blue and Orange).
