INVOC SOL 5 - Anagach





Anagach, in Speyside, was the venue for the fifth (of seven) race of the Scottish Orienteering League series. As always, it was superb, offering technical orienteering through open, if sometimes heathery, pine forest.

I ran M50L which was 6.8k with 230m of climb and 19 controls.

BL Regional Event - Swindale N



Swindale is in the north eastern Lake District, is an easy drive down the motorway and offers excellent orienteering on open fell. The weather was dry, which given how wet it's been in Scotland this summer, was an added bonus!

I ran M50L which was 7.3k with 230m of climb and 15 controls.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 06, 2008

BASOC 11 Person Relay - Loch Vaa



Will Hensman on first leg for FVO.



The 11 person relay starts off with a single runner, who hands over to 3 runners, who in turn hand over to 3 more runners. A third trio of runners hands over to the last and final runner.

This years relay was organised by Badenoch and Strathspey Orienteering Club and was held at Loch Vaa, near Aviemore - a fantastic area of glacial moraines that was used for the World Relay Championships in 1999.

I ran last leg for FVO 1 and was sent off with a lead which I was able to hold on to on my "Tartan" course which was 3.2k with 90m of climb and 12 controls.

FVO Time Trial - Polmaise Wood



Trevor Hoey organised a 5.2k time trial with 180m of climb and 15 controls (2 laps of 2.6k with 90m of climb) which involved following a taped route on paths, terrain, hills and included electronic punching. I took 25:02 but lost some time by going off course between 6 and 7 on the first loop. Jamie Stevenson recorded the fastest time of 22:15 and was just in front of Ross McLennan.
