The last round of the Scottish Orienteering League before the summer break took place in a warm Perthshire at Auchingarrich. The very tricky forest is one that competitors seem to love or hate because it requires precise orienteering, and any mistakes are very costly.

For Roxburgh Reivers, Ian Maxwell had a great run to record a rare victory on the competitive M50 course while John Tullie M55 and Lindsey Knox W50 took 2nd place on their courses.

Some of the club’s newer members were also at the race to get a taste of larger events and had obviously benefitted from Ian Maxwell’s coaching sessions. On the W50 short course Fiona Johnston took 1st place with Cathy Rooney in 2nd.

The next local event will be held in Wilton Park, Hawick on Saturday June 15. For details, visit
