Johannes Felter, the clubs development officer, was 13th at the inaugural Glen Coe Skyline race. This is 52.96km with 4,256m of climb, which he did in 8:33:10. The winner, Joe Symonds, did it in 7:36:21. The route features long and sustained sections of scrambling terrain, which is roughly equivalent to moderate standard rock climbing.

This autumn we are going to be running a BASOC junior club. This is aimed at juniors (under 20’s) who have done some orienteering already (mostly at our events over the last year or so), but do get in touch if you’re a beginner and would like to come along!
Wow, what a week. It’s hard to know where to begin. (This article is quite long, you might want to go and make a cup of tea! The short version is: amazing week, great crowds and now I’m exhausted!
