GRAMP District Event - Forvie




Forvie lies on the coast to the north of Aberdeen and is a National Nature Reserve managed by Scottish Natural Heritage. Permission to use such a sensitive area for todays event was, in part, due to a Monitoring Report (produced by the Scottish Orienteering Association) which provides event organisers with guidelines on how to minimise the environmental impact of their courses on the area. The efforts of all concerned gave access to a beautiful area with fantastic contour detail, which; on a wonderfully warm autumn day, provided one of the most memorable events of the year!

I ran the Blue (second longest!) course which was 6.6k with 15 controls.

MAROC District Event - Inchmarnoch





Deeside was at its autumnal best, with the golden leaves of the birches contrasting wonderfully with the dark green of the scots pine needles. The event used Inchmarnoch on the south side of the River Dee for some courses and Cambus O'May (to the north of the Dee) for others. Both are wonderful areas - rough, tough and technical!

I ran the Brown course which was in Inchmarnoch and which was 7.4k with 220m of climb and 16 controls. It was also the first half of a Long O which, following a 2k run along a cycle path, concluded with the Blue course on Cambus O'May.
