From comments I received everyone seemed to enjoy the return to Birsemore for night orienteering. We were very lucky with a mild evening and I hope that runners appreciated visiting the better terrain, although the obvious option of leaving the hill to the last control on the path seems not to have been taken up by some. Apologies for the computing hiccups on the night but all is now retrieved and sorted.
First DNC Deeside Night Cup event. Night orienteering. 2 courses on offer. Both at TD5 (green standard and above).
