Explanation of Event levels

Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Activities are non competitive events used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships.



Thanks to Louis, Iris and Susannah for putting on the second of this years Ecko events. After what seemed like weeks of rain the sun came out in the afternoon making for some glorious running on the hill if a little wet underfoot.

We also had members of the Scottish West Area Team (SWAT) training with us including Ecko juniors. 10 Ecko adult members also took part in some coaching sessions designed to help progress their skills at orange and light green level.

Thanks to Forest and Land Scotland and Martin Charlton for allowing us access to the area. To Alan for printing maps and preparing the results. To Roger, Nicola, Jan, Gill, Fran, Ross, Ed, Andrea, and Susannah for coaching. To Louis, Iris, Fran, Jan and Ross for collecting controls.
