You will all have heard about the new diseases spreading in our forests – from Ash die back to Ramorum and others that affect Pine trees. Naturally we are getting requests from landowners for us to help avoid introducing any infections into their areas. To this end please can you ensure that all shoes are cleaned of the previous event’s mud/pine needles etc before going to the next event. At present using a household disinfectant is sufficient (though if outbreaks of disease do start appearing locally we might need to use stronger stuff….)
If we can show we are taking steps to avoid problems it will stand us in good stead if any outbreaks happen and might well stop us being barred from some of our areas.
Please comply with this request and help continue the club’s good relations with local landowners.

Mean and moody on top, hares in winter pelage, and we just beat the rain back to the cars.

Maroc’s Inver Level C event, rescheduled from the deep snow of March until 10th Nov, did not disappoint. With challenging upland courses expertly planned by Andrew McMurtrie and meticulously controlled by Roger, it was Fran who stepped-in as organiser at the last minute to ensure the event ran smoothly. Early rain cleared to leave a cold but still day, giving fabulous views across the Dee to snow-capped Lochnagar. After finishing the tough and hilly courses, runners were offered a choice of no less than nine hot soups and a table piled high with homebakes. The catering raised over £170 for Maroc juniors, thanks to everyone’s support.

Ideal conditions - blue sky, bright sun and crisp frost - greeted 16 Maroc runners for a 10k / 13k jog around Durris forest. The circular route provided views in all directions, with snow on the distant Cairngorms dazzling in the morning sun. A smaller group scaled the heights of Cairn MonEarn (pronounced Mon-Errrrn) to add some extra height and distance to the training. A request was made for future Saturday runs to include a shorter 6k route, giving a chance for more club members to enjoy the fresh air.
