Saltoun Big Wood  Saturday 26 September 2020

This was our second Saturday event after the easing of the virus restrictions. It was staged using the same methods of meeting the distancing and hygiene requirements as at last month’s event – except that this time we were able to include some juniors and their families from other local clubs. Thanks to everyone who attended and co-operated with the special arrangements.

Thanks to the whole event team and to Pete Brownsort for his first event as planner – he certainly posed some tough challenges in our most technically demanding area. With the added bonus of blackberries – everywhere. Remember to check for ticks.

It’s that AGM time of year again. The AGM is the chance for all members to have their say in the direction and running of the club.

We will be electing officers for the next 12 months and setting the level of membership fees, amongst many other items.

Barns Ness  Saturday 29 August 2020

It was great to see everyone back to the first post-lockdown event in the East of Scotland. Thank you to the Council Ranger for facilitating this.

Well done to Godfrey for planning the courses and to Colin for helping him put out and collect in the controls.

Everyone seemed to be delighted to be getting the opportunity to be orienteering again although the excuse of “being rusty” was being used to explain the navigational errors!

The splits printer was working to begin with and we don’t know (yet) why it sulked and stopped printing but you can find your splits with the results and laugh at the variously variable times recorded.

Thank you to the Start team – Michael, Ian and Jamie for setting  up and running the start and for cleaning all the start equipment and units at the end.

Well done to everyone for participating within the safety guidelines with good humour all round!

Although there are no results on display today and the splits printer refused to work, we hope you found them online. Final versions are now available –

SprintELOpe Week 5
Dunbar & Haddington

SprintELOpe Week 5  Dunbar & Haddington

Welcome to our final installment of summer urban orienteering.  We have two lovely courses using different parts of Dunbar and Haddington to those visited before.  The courses go live at 7am on Monday morning but there is no need to do two courses each week as the courses will stay available until the end of August!

Both courses start close to the suggested parking.

You can download a PDF of the course which can be printed on A4 paper and you can make use of the MapRunF app (see below).

It’s great to be able to orienteer again and we look forward to seeing and hearing how you get on with the courses even if we can’t see you at the finish line to hear in person!

Virtually a SprintELOpe series…

Virtually a SprintELOpe series…

Now that we are able to travel more than 5 miles to exercise we can go a little further than our very local patches and take up some orienteering again. We’ve chosen to reprise 10 highlights from recent urban sprint events to run as a summer series.

Each Monday for the next five weeks, we will release two courses (roughly one in the East and one in the West) and you can download a map and run! You can even use MapRunF on your phone to let you know when you get to the controls.

All the courses are around 5km straight line distance, which means you’ll run or walk a little further than that in practice.

Look out for the first two courses being released on Monday.
