Strathclyde Country Park, 15 April
Strathclyde Country Park is SE of Glasgow, beside the River Clyde and the M74. The main feature of the park is Strathclyde Loch, fed by the South Calder River, whose steep-sided valley cuts the park in half. The terrain is mature woodland (often with fairly scratchy undergrowth) and open parkland, with plenty of tracks and paths.
As at the other events in the series, there were 25 controls (5 each with 300 points, 400 points, 500 points, 600 points and 700 points) giving 12,500 as the maximum possible.
