Success for EckO athletes and congratulations to Iris
Firstly, the Scottish Championships were held at Craig a Barns last Sunday and several Ecko athletes competed. Congratulations to Andy Dale M50L - 10th, Iris MacMillan W16A - 4th, Susannah MacMillan W50L- 3rd and finally Gill Berrow W65 - 1st. Their results are hugely impressive considering that Craig a Barns has notoriously difficult terrain and challenging navigation. These championships are open to anyone and are a fantastic experience as there are courses to suit everyone so next year lets get a huge EckO contingent together and have a go!
Secondly, Some exciting news for Iris !
After some great races at the selection races in the Lakes a couple of weekends ago, Iris has got a GB selection for EYOC (European Youth Orienteering Championship) in Vilnius, Lithuania from 20 -22 August! Over the summer Iris will be training hard and will hopefully have the opportunity to attend various training camps in Scotland. She is absolutely thrilled. The MacMillan family and EckO are all super proud of her efforts and amazing achievement!
