Scottish Relays - Drummond Castle and Torlum





It's always good to run in new orienteering areas and Drummond Castle and Torlum was no exception. Like yesterday, the forest was tough going, especially so following last Monday's storm; but it again provided a good technical challenge, with spectator interest at the control to the south of the pond. I ran third leg for FVO Facetious (Ben Stansfield was first off, with Jason Inman on second leg) on the Handicap 6+ course, with my leg being 4.9k with 210m of climb and 21 controls.
