Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club


SOUL 8, 2019

MacRosty Park, Crieff, 31 July

The Rest Day Sprint was organised by Masterplan Adventure, in MacRosty Park, and had a much larger entry than is usual at SOUL events. MacRosty Park is in the valley of the Turret Burn, on the west side of Crieff, with some steep slopes. There are many mature trees, a Victorian bandstand, children’s play areas, flower beds, and grassed areas, criss-crossed by paths, steps and bridges over the burn and an old mill lade. The courses zig-zagged around the park, and M/W Open also ventured into the streets outside the park.

ESOC members in the top half of the results were:
  Open Men (76 competitors) – Ben Brown 8th 
  Open Women (62) – Gill Martin 14th=
  Veteran Men 40+ (69) – Terry Johnstone 30th
  Veteran Women 40+ (61) – Hanne Robertson 19th, Judy Bell 30th
  Supervet Men 55+ (86) – Keith Brown 24th
