Castlelaw, 14th Apr

ESOC local event in Edinburgh and the Lothians with an extra course, Long Green, 10k

A super area for orienteering at all skill levels.  At this event we will have the usual courses (including a Green course) plus a 10k Long Green course.  Something for absolutely everyone.

ORGANISER’S COMMENTS: Janet Clark writes:  The day of this event was an unbelievably lovely surprise, truly the first day of spring!  The prospects hadn't looked good during the week before, with sleet and low cloud making it very hard to check and tape control sites.  But all that was forgotten as the sun shone, the fields and hill rapidly filled up with new-born lambs (100 were born that day) and everyone from experienced hill runners to beginner families enjoyed their runs.  The addition of a 10km course was popular; and we'll do this again on the Pentlands.  
We're very grateful to the shepherd who tolerates us at this time of year, and, as ever, to the small but hard-working team of ESOC members who made the event possible.



Socials for Spring into Summer 2018

A great opportunity to meet other ESOC members outside of a more formal event.

The lighter nights are here and these bring the opportunity to do some fun stuff without having to bring a head torch.
