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!
This weekend 14/15 May 2016, is the Cairngorms Nature Festival and we have a treat for mtb orienteers at the Laggan Wolftrax Centre, at Strathmashie, PH201BU. Kingussie High School have planned an iorienteering mtb O experience and will be there to hand out maps and explain how it all works.
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?"
For this special weekend, all orienteering maps will be FREE.
