Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club


Holyrood Park, 21st Oct

ESOC local event in Edinburgh and the Lothians

A great area in the centre of Edinburgh but still suitable for all orienteering skill levels.  Updated information added to main web item on Friday 20th October.  

Here are the results

This is the winsplits for the courses

It was such a lovely surprise that today turned out dry and almost sunny instead of the threatened storm.  Everyone was able to enjoy the considerable challenges presented by Whinny Hill and its eponymous gorse bushes without the additional problems of driving rain.   The optional Mass Start on Green was a new idea taken up by the bravest, with the additional interest of a "spectator leg" through the car park.   Today was notable for the number of enquiries about what we were doing from passing runners  and walkers; all good publicity for the club and for this great sport.  We are so lucky in Edinburgh to have Holyrood Park on our doorstep; and grateful to the Edinburgh University Orienteering Club for letting us use their map; to the Planner Andrew Lindsay for his ingenious courses, and to the strong team of ESOC members who made the event happen.
