October’s ELO event was at Binning Wood. Results are here now.
You can also compare your times with others on the WinSplits Online website and compare your routes on the Routegadget site.
Thanks to all those who attended and enjoyed the autumn sunshine. There was a good turnout including plenty of first timers. Sheila Strain did some coaching for juniors beforehand and the benefit was shown in the results. In fact ELO members did very well on all courses:-
- Emily Atkinson was the fastest round the White course
- Angus Wright won the Yellow course and was second on Orange
- Kathryn Neill won Light Green by over three minutes from some very experienced orienteers.
Courses were planned by Julian Hall. Binning Wood is where the photograph at the top of this website was taken.
Parking is at NT593796 or EH40 3DT Streetmap
Registration, start and finish are all here too.
Starts from 2 to 3pm. Courses close at 4pm. Although the clocks don’t go backward until later that night, it is getting dark earlier and we will want to collect the controls in before it does.
