ESOC local event in Edinburgh and Lothians (part of World Orienteering Day)
An excellent orienteering area for every skill and level of experience. This early evening event will be part of World Orienteering Day events and activities in Edinburgh. Read on for more information.
The timing issues have been sorted out, so you will be pleased to see that the anomalous negative times have all been corrected. The results are here.
Winsplits are here. If you are new to orienteering, these splits allow you to compare how you did over every leg with the others on your course. Hopefully if you have a look it should be self explanatory.
ORGANISER’S COMMENTS: Janet writes - There's not much to beat a run around up on Arthur's Seat on a lovely sunny evening; perfect for World Orienteering Day. The Results show a great mixture of regular orienteers, who would know what to expect, and relative newcomers who seemed to enjoy it just as much. The large group of Beavers, who appear in the Results as Groups 1-8 were real stars with their excited enthusiasm.
Coming after a morning spent down near Holyrood Palace introducing school groups - and an MSP - to orienteering through activities and games, some of the volunteer helpers put in a twelve-hour day; but the lovely sunshine and the appreciation of the competitors makes it all worth while!
