Feedback Sat 8th September: Silvermine South East

27  Runners turned up at Silvermine South East in a mild yet overcast Spring morning.  We split into the two groups with Julian leading the main group of 20 off on a steady run around to the amphitheater.  The Recovery group followed at a more modest pace.

Seems the Recovery Group are chuffed with finding the Marker Cairn where it should be!
No mishaps nor navigational errors experienced by either group.

Congratulations to Julian the main group leader, who completed his 25th sortie and thus becomes eligible to wear a Red Tee.

And to Angela Hutchinson who joins the Decurions by having done 10 sorties

Feedback: Sat 1sr September, Glencairn

After the wind and heavy rain on Friday evening Nine of us took a chance that the forecast of clearing weather would be right.   At what a glorious morning it turned out to be.    Julia led the main group around the route without any mishaps and only one small navigation error towards the end.   The recovery route followed them but took a short cut to shorten their route.   

All in all a really good outing that made up for the frustrations of the cancelled runs we have had these last few weeks.    The photos below tell it all
