MAROC at The Edinburgh Big Weekend
Several MAROC members made the journey to Edinburgh for EUOCs latest annual "Big Weekend". Very challenging urban Orienteering through the cityon the Saturday was followed by the South of Scotland O League race on Arthurs Seat. Both days provided significant physical challenges on the excellently planned technical courses.
Saturdays event used the eastern side of the city centre and posed some interesting route choices around Calton Hill, whilst one or two long legs on Sundays courses had competitors also scratching their heads, usually as to whether to go "over or around".
