Eildon Hills, 26 March

The Eildon Hills are in the Scottish Borders just south of Melrose, full of legends about fairies, King Arthur, and more. The start was on the NE side of the hills, and the longer courses had some long legs right across the hills. Most controls were in the woodland on the south side, with the finish on the eastern side. Many found the going quite tough, and there were some long times.
The weather was warm and sunny, with good views from the open hill, but it was often quite wet and muddy underfoot.

ESOC members in the top half of the results were:
  Brown (11 competitors) - Jonathan Ellis 2nd, Mark Wood 6th
  Blue (24) - Walter Clark 4th, Tyler Morrison 9th, Alison Cunningham 10th
  Green (42) - Rona Lindsay 1st, Finlay Ross 3rd, Dave Kershaw 4th, Roger Garnett 6th, Maggie Scrugham 8th, Alastair Lessells 9th, Tim Westmoreland 10th, Ben Brown 19th, Kerry Wood 21st
  Short Green (15) - Margaret Dalgleish 1st, Heidi Ross 2nd, Robert Findlay 3rd, Janet Clark 4th, Anne Stevenson 6th, Leonne Hutchinson 8th
  Light Green (10) - Rachel Brown 1st
  Orange (8) - Joseph Lawlor 4th
  Yellow (7) - Megan Brown 4th
  White (3) - Rowan Lawlor 1st, Zoe Clark 2nd
