Danestone, 15 September
This urban event took place NW of Aberdeen city centre, in the housing estates on the north side of the River Don, scene of a previous SOUL event in 2014. This time the event was based at Danestone Community Centre, with indoor registration, download and refreshments available. This is a mixed urban area, with plenty of route choice along pathways and alleys between the houses, as well as open grassed areas, and the longest courses also visited a mill lade in steep woodland by the River Don and a complicated new development near the old mill buildings.
ESOC members in the top half of the results were:
M Open (7 competitors) – Ben Brown 3rd
M Supervet (10) – Keith Brown 5th
W Junior (3) – Rachel Brown 1st
W Young Junior (2) – Maja Robertson 1st
