Northern Night Cup Success

Scottish NIght Championships

BASOC showed our strength in night orienteering at the Northern NIght Cup series that concluded at Lochandinty last Wednesday evening. We had the 1st, 2nd & 4th places on the long course, 1st & 2nd on the Medium and 1st on the short.

We now have the opportunity to shine again, but this time on a larger stage, the Scottish Night Championships at Darnaway on the 18th February. Moravian are hosting the event this year along with the Scottish Sprint Championships on the Saturday. So whilst we don't practice running around the streets at high speed we are good in the forest, in the dark.
