Lochardil and Holm - Friday 14th September

[posted 15th Sept]

Thank you all for coming. We hope you enjoyed yourselves. Huge thank you to Wullie Nicolson for planning and organising 2 fantastic courses. Thank you to all of the other helpers too. Looking at Winsplits many were caught out by controls on other sides of high walls and fences.  Read those control descriptions and picture.   Round 3 on Friday - that will be the perfect run. 


Holm Dell and Ness Castle urban - Friday 7th September

[posted 9th September]

About 60 people came and enjoyed a nice evenings run.  Did anyone manage all the optimum route choices?  Thanks a lot to Alison Matheson (organiser), Alasdair & Finaly Raynor (planners) and Pablo Alvarez-Icaza (SI). 


Results - Nairn East Beach [Sunday August 26th]

[posted Sun 26th August]

Thanks to the event team Carolyn and Laurence Cload (organiser), Finlay Todd (planner) and Jon Shepherd (SI).  The rain held off until the end, giving us a better day than forecast.  Nice change to the parking and finish, giving a different run through the dunes, and with the added bonus of a blue course for those wantign to stretch their legs.
