Kames, 21 August

There was a good ESOC turnout for AYROC’s South of Scotland Orienteering League event, which was originally scheduled to take place in February, but had to be postponed due to bad weather.


Manor Valley Run/Social, incorporating Jim Clark’s 80th birthday celebration

Jo Stevenson, home for a short break, reports on the run and evening festivities.


Croeso 2016

Croeso (Welsh for welcome) is the name given to the Welsh summer multiday event which is held once every 4 years. Eleanor Pyrah reports on the 2016 event from ESOC's point of view.


Purple Thistle 2016

Held at Balmacara, on stunningly wild open rocky hillside with distracting views of Skye (when the weather cleared enough to actually see the stunning views).



August and September Socials

More social dates for your diary

Two very different socials coming up.  The first in the heart of the border hills and the next in a West Lothian country park.  Come along and enjoy a run followed by a cup of tea/coffee and social. Note these are both on the second Monday of the month rather than the usual first Monday.
