MAROC and Grampian Orienteers are holding a joint SOL weekend incorporating the Senior Home Internationals.
On the Saturday GRAMP will be staging Middle Distance races at Balmedie along with the SHI Relays, and on the Sunday it's MAROCs turn with a full distance SOL at Glen Tanar.
Since it was built as a traditional highland estate in 1869, Glen Tanar has been inviting people to relax and enjoy the great outdoors amidst a beautiful 25,000 acre landscape encompassing farmland, river, pine forests and heather clad moors.
Last used for World Championship Selection races in 2015 and the Scottish 6 Day in 2017.
Entries will open on Wednesday 11th August.
Welcome Back! - Scottish Orienteering Association.
SOA have published their guidance on permitted activities and events for orienteering in Scotland with immediate effect. Following the First Minister’s statement on Tuesday we are delighted to see the easing of our ‘Stay At Home’ restrictions to permit the return of organised sport.
Full details here.
Maroc juniors have been set a series of indoor and outdoor activities to do during the January and February 2021 lockdown. These are available here.
MAROC is aiming to organise the following events as part of the 2021 Wednesday night forest spring series. Having just had to go through and cancel the next few events on the calendar, this is looking like our next opportunity to get out in the forest and race. Fingers crossed that by the end of March we will be able to do so!
We are looking for planner/organisers for the first 3 events (we already have a volunteer for Denlethen), so if you can then please step forward. The MAROC events are:-
31st March - Dess
14th April - Bellwood
28th April - Cambus
12th May - Denlethen
There will be three courses at each event: Short Sprint (c.2.5km), Long Sprint (c.3.5km) and Yellow.
