Glen O’Dee 24/10/18

Let battle commence! Whether it’s against rivals from the neighbouring club or just to beat the dark and get round relatively cleanly I hope you’re all going to be at Glen O’Dee on Wednesday for the first of the season?

Looks like parking and registration will be at Burnett Park, Banchory. Fork right after passing the Tor na coille Hotel and look for a red/blue reflector hanging on the gates if you’ve never been before.

Starts/Reg 18:00 – 19:00
Courses close 20:00/20:30 TBC

Don’t forget a spare battery/torch.


DNC 2018/19

Two courses 3km and 5km at TD5/Green standard as far as possible. No concessions to the dark.

24th Jan 2018 Balnagowan

Results, splits and RG on Maroc website

Courses Long: 5.2km, 11 controls Medium: 3.0km, 11 controls

Balnagowan. Deceptively difficult in places with subtle contour detail. Sporadic windblow in places but courses avoid the worst of this. Long course will visit the northern hill. Medium will loop round the south eastern part and will use one control twice so read the map carefully.

Parking is in the same place as Coull event. On the track 1km North of the junction in Aboyne with the B9094 Tarland Road. It can be muddy. Please park carefully and avoid getting stuck or blocking anyone in. There is plenty space on the side of the track further down if the main area at the top is full.

Starts between 6-7pm please. Courses close at 8:30. Results should be up in record time.
