This was a fun training session prior to the AGM. The Roxburgh Reivers were not part of the mass start and so I have used their clear time as their start time. This may not be accurate but is the best guess.
People were given a specific target number of controls to visit within a 45 minute period. No penalties have been applied for late finishing.
Adrian Hope was the first to finish having visited his target number of 6 controls.
Pre Event Info
Meet at 10.30am ready to run. There will be a brief briefing at the hall then we will jog/walk as a group to the start (see map for any latecomers!)
The area is the lovely Tolquhonie woods - check out the map on maps page.
The race format is a mass start handicap score - get the number of controls you are allocated. First to manage it wins!
After the race there will be a "pot luck" lunch. Bring a dish! Savoury, sweet, anything goes.
The day "finale" will be the AGM. Aim is to kick off at 13.30. It will include a celebration fo the year gone and should be entertaining as well as getting the essential AGM duties done.

1 course for all - a handicap score
Explanation of Score courses
You don't have to visit all the controls! There is usually a time limit, instead of a set course. Points are scored for visiting controls, and deducted for finishing over the time limit. You decide which controls to visit, and in which sequence. Sometimes controls have different points values. You will need to carry a watch or phone, so you know how long you have been out.
Hired timing chips (Si-Cards, dibbers)
We provide a free loan of these if you don't have your own but if you lose it there will be a £30 charge for its replacement.
Lovely mature scots pine forest with an interesting valley running hrough it and subtle contours on the hill tops.
Toilets and kitchen in the hall
dogs OK on leads
