Congratulations to the 39 orienteers who braved the snow to run at Braes DNC, who were rewarded with a fast forest run and low temperatures!  Unfortunately disaster stuck and SI timing did not work, so no official results are available.  The organiser apologises to all affected.  Self-time results are posted above, points allocation is under discussion.

Special mention to Dougal Mather – our youngest orienteer of the night (M10) – well done!

Explanation of colour courses

  • Yellow use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams. They are mainly used by under 12’s and family groups.
  • Orange progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.
  • Light Green are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and point features.
  • Green are used mostly by experienced under 18’s and adults wanting a short but challenging course with a very hard navigational difficulty.
  • Blue are a longer, more physically demanding course in comparison to the green. The distances are more varied between controls and the course attracts experienced orienteers.
  • Brown & Black are very physically demanding and have a very hard navigational difficulty. They are for experienced orienteers only.
  • Score means visiting as many controls as possible in any order in a specific time, like 45mins.
