Abernethy Primary win 2016 title

The series is now finished for 2016. After a late surge from Carrbridge Primary, Abernethy managed to hold off the competition and have won the 2016 title. There was a desperately close contest for 3rd place between Aviemore & Deshar.

Are you feeling  a bit lost now the series is over? Click here for our guide to keeping your orienteering going.

Some quick stats: the number of runners increased every week up to a fantastic turnout of 52 for the final round. In total there have been 179 runs. The total distance run by all runners combined is a staggering 372km!

We have new superb "semi-permanent" orienteering courses. The Easy, Medium, and Medium+ courses now have an added optional, feature, QR codes, linked to iorienteering. In addition there is a new String course with prizes, "What is hiding in the forest?"

Kingussie High School Sports Open Day

A fun local community project for BASOC

Inverness College, Kingussie High School and the local Community Sports Hub all worked together to put on a fun little taster event round the grounds of Kingussie High School. This was part of a Sports Taster Day where pupils in S1-S4 got to try everything from roller skiing to indoor bowling via shinty, football, mountain biking and of course orienteering.

Well done to the 30 pupils who took part - find your results here.

Tuesday=O, so we go out and do some orienteering. Call it training or just playing, it’s as hard as you want it to be, both physically and technically, and now it's in daylight!
So dig out that compass and give it a go.
