Reivers do well in Northern Ireland

The 2002 British Orienteering Championships took place at Magilligan, Northern Ireland at the weekend (May 5 2002). Postponed from last year, following the foot and mouth outbreak that decimated the orienteering season, several Roxburgh Reivers travelled across the Irish Sea and recorded some commendable results.

Once again, the best performance came from Douglas Tullie on the M14A age class. Douglas finished in fourth place, with a time of 44:53 for the 4.8 Kilometre course and just eleven seconds away from a top three placing. Older brother James also had a great run, coming home in sixth place on the M16A age class and second Scot behind Scott Fraser of Edinburg-based Interlopers.

In the seniors, former Southern Reporter editor Douglas Henderson of Riding Mill finished in 15th place on the M50L age class  whilst Carol Boyd completed a quartet of top results for Roxburgh Reivers by coming in seventh on the W21S age class.

Full results and splits are available from the British Championships Website.
