Pollok Country Park, 11 February
Pollok Country Park is in Glasgow, SW of the centre, and is Glasgow's largest park. Although this event took place in the same area as the previous evening’s Scottish Night Championships, it was a different map - brand new, using a very clear 1:5,000 scale, on A3 paper. The event centre was on the east side of the park at Nether Pollok playing fields. Those who had been there the previous night appreciated the chance to see the area in daylight. It was very wet underfoot, with lots of mud, and although there was thick undergrowth in places to slow people down, there were some fast runs.
The weather was quite cold, but stayed dry, and the sun came out later on.

Blue (33 competitors) – Ben Brown 4th, Heather Thomson 5th, Tyler Morrison 9th, Keith Brown 12th, Peter O’Hara 13th, Finlay Ross 15th, Crawford Lindsay 17th
