Drumpellier Country Park, 19 January
Drumpellier Country Park is near Coatbridge, to the east of Glasgow. The Start and Finish were by the recently refurbished Visitor Centre, at the north end of the park. There’s a wide variety of terrain, including mixed woodland, marsh and lowland heath, with a network of paths and tracks, around a loch with some gentle hills to the south.
As before, the main event was a 60-minute Score course, and there was a “Score Twist” option as an additional challenge. Yellow, Orange, and Light Green courses were also available. For the Score, 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 score, which was achieved by 4 of the 60-minute Score competitors.
There were 74 competitors on the 60-minute Score course, and the following ESOC members were in the top half of the results:
Heather Thomson – 6th (12,000 points)
