Jess has been racing in the mountains...read about it here!
On Saturday Jess donned a different pair of running shoes to take part in the inaugural Ring of Steall Skyrace. The younger sister of the extreme Glen Coe Skyline (the one Johannes ran well in last year), this race takes in the peaks of the famous Ring of Steall mountains in the Mamores. At 29km with 2,500m climb, it’s a pretty brutal race! A bit different to our usual orienteering races.
In association with Russwood Ltd - we present the 2016 BASOC WOLF.
Over the weekend of 10/11th September.
Sat Morning: Glen Gynack, Middle distance results
Sat Afternoon: Kingussie, Urban Sprint (SOUL 8) results

This year we had a team in the Jamie Stevenson Trophy for the first time since 2008 - well done girls! Not only did they run they have also written a report too :-)
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.

I am aiming to complete my Level 2 Orienteering Coach qualification by offering a block of 6 progressive coached night orienteering sessions. These will run alongside normal Tue = O from 6th October to 10th November. There are only 6 spaces available. You'll just pay the usual Tue=O charge (or your Bulk Payment option).
