Spring Series 2021

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.

On the last Sunday before Christmas we are putting on a members-only score event type training session at Glen O Dee, Banchory. This will be a fun festive-themed caper aimed at our younger members and anyone else with good short-term memory! How many controls can you visit within a set time? And how many of these controls can you remember when you get back to base??! Bonus points will be awarded for fancy dress and for festive jokes that make the coaches laugh. We will meet at Burnett Park pavilion at 10.30 and walk together to the start, returning around 12pm. Maps will be provided and dibbers not required. Parking available by the tennis courts. Cost £3 adults and £1.50 children by donation to Maroc account. Any questions contact the organiser – .
