RR SoSOL - Lanton Moor



Roxburgh Reivers organised todays South of Scotland Orienteering League event at Lanton Moor, close to Jedburgh. I ran the Brown course which was 9.9k with 200m of climb and 22 controls, and which was won by Jegor Kostylev in 61.04.

After the event, I was recommended to "refuel" at the Woodside Garden Cafe which was so good that I ate and drank far more than intended!

SROC Regional Event - Hutton Roof and Dalton Crags





I've run in the south west part of todays area (Dalton) once before - in 1976 on a 2 coloured (black and brown) map made by Mel Wilkinson. My recollection was of a tough and technical area and today, 35 years later, I've been reminded how tough and technical it is!

I ran Short Brown/M50L which was 6.8k with 300m of climb and 17 controls, and which was won by Martin Bagness in 57.10.

FVO Night Race - Stirling Old Town





Tonight's Night Race was planned by Ross McLennan, who used his garden for control 4/7/10. The Long course was 4.3k with 17 controls and despite a mass start, legs with lots of route choice, coupled with gaffling; meant that runners were often on their own. After 10, I found myself in a pack with 3 other runners, with the lead changing repeatedly as runners took different routes. It was such an absorbing race that I only became aware of the heavy rain, that had apparently been falling throughout the race, once I'd finished!
