Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club

“Not the JK” 2019Moncreiffe Hill, 21 April

Tayside Orienteers organised this event for those who weren’t travelling to the JK, and the ESOC entry was similar to that at the JK itself, with some great results.

Moncreiffe Hill is near Bridge of Earn, and is a major landmark on the M90 motorway when heading north. The south side of the hill has steep crags, and the northern side is gentler, with a mix of open and wooded land, and many paths. There are two iron-age hill forts, and fantastic views from the top of the hill. Parking and Registration were at the Woodland Trust car park at the NW end of the hill, with a walk uphill to the start.
The weather was very warm and sunny.

ESOC results in the top half for their course were:
Blue (13 competitors) – Peter O’Hara 3rd, Jim Martin 4th, Clive Masson 5th, Finlay Ross 6th
Green (16) – Richard Oxlade 1st, Leonne Hutchinson 7th
Short Green (19) – Mary Williams 1st, Nick Hepworth 5th, Anne Thom 8th

Full results and other information about the event are available on the “Not the JK” event item on the TAY website.
