Thanks to everyone who came – almost one hundred took part as individuals or in family groups. The weather wasn’t very kind but there was plenty of positive feedback for Duncan Edmondson who was planning courses for the first time.
The first race put on by ELO in 2017 will be in the woods and streets in the south of Dunbar, with registration at Hallhill Sports Centre.
There will be White, Yellow, Orange and Light Green courses although British Orienteering rules mean that unaccompanied runners under 16 cannot do the urban Light Green. The urban course is longer than the typical Light Green and might be alternatively described as an urban Green course.
Type of event: Local event in the East of Scotland Orienteering Association (ESOA) winter series
Type of terrain: Parkland, Woodland, Urban
Terrain: A mixture of parkland and woodland with some muddy sections for White, Yellow and Orange courses. As well as the woods the Light Green course uses various housing estates and crosses several small roads – so British Orienteering rules prohibit anyone under 16 years old running it unaccompanied.
Nearest town: Dunbar
