Bonaly Park, 18th Jun

ESOC local event in Edinburgh and the Lothians

Your opportunity to run on the Pentland Hills but remain very close to the city of Edinburgh.  

The results are here. The winsplits are here.

How did we manage to pick the one dry day among many wet ones and, better still, a day with no midges around?    This was Bonaly at its best, and Saturday afternoon orienteering at its best, with a challenge for everyone no matter what level of age or experience, and an equal variety of people coming to tackle these challenges.  It was a good idea of Walter's to take the Green Course beyond the rather small Bonaly Park map.  The local knowledge of Keith and Margaret was very helpful in putting out the controls.  Several people added another event to their Junior Record card; and Zoe brought a lot of her school friends.  Congratulations and thanks to one and all.
