Clydeside Orienteers organised today's middle distance race at Coille Nathais - an area of oak woodland on the south side of Loch Etive in Argyll. I ran the Blue course which was 4.3k with 175m of climb and 16 controls.
ESOC organised this years Sprint O in Edinburgh which followed the usual format of a Prologue followed by a Chase. I was in the Mens Super Veteran's category which ran the same course as the Mens and Womens Open.
Edinburgh University Orienteering Club organised today's South of Scotland Orienteering League race. I ran the Brown course which was 8.4k with 630m of climb and 30 controls. The course incorporated a section of micro-O (between controls 18 and 25) which had a map at a scale of 1:1,000.
I am an enthusiastic orienteer who runs for Forth Valley Orienteers in Scotland. I began orienteering nearly 40 years ago when at school in Cheshire and currently compete in the M55 age class.
This site is a record of my orienteering exploits, with occasional forays into my other hobbies of telemark skiing and watching wildlife.
