Roxburgh Reivers’ Douglas Tullie continued his fantastic form this season at Sunday’s National Event, held at Bigland Hall, near Ulverston, in the Lake District. Following up his fourth place at the recent Jan Kjellstrom International event and a win at last weekend’s Scottish Orienteering League race near Aboyne, Douglas narrowly missed out on the top spot in the M14A age class in one of North West England’s best areas. Douglas, from Teviothead, finished just 22 seconds down on winner Rhodri Buffet of South Wales, with a time of 46:17 for the 4.6 kilometre course and was a clear five minutes ahead of third placed fellow Scot Andrew Rogan of Moravian.
Older brother James also had a good run, with a top ten place on the competitive M16A age class. James, who finished in ninth place, was third Scot behind the eventual winner Oleg Cheplin of Grampian OC and recorded a time of just over 70 minutes for the physical 6.6 Kilometre course.
