Club Training on The Slacks

Saturday 28th : Kilpatricks, 13:00
Meet at the new carpark (G60 5LT) just beyond the Old Kilpatrick gas works at 13:00.
Training will be on Patrick’s map which Simon has merged with the larger lidar data set.
There will be a number of short courses based from near the top of the hill including corridor and window courses.
For juniors and beginners, there is a good network of paths which will have been mapped from the track upwards
(without additional surrounding detail), the terrain will still be steep.
Note that there is a considerable climb to get to the training, about 2km and 220m climb, so it may not be suitable for everyone.

The Easter weekend saw the annual JK orienteering festival.

The festival is to commemorate Jan Kjellström, a Swedish orienteer who played an important role in the development of the sport of orienteering in Great Britain.

This year it was held in “variable” weather conditions in the West Midlands. There were four races, a Sprint, Middle, Long and Relay. Donald Petrie was the star CLYDE athlete, winning all three individual races, and a second place in the relay. Alice Wilson was 2nd overall in the two forest races, and Dave Robertson was third in the sprint. Ex-Clyde members Ali McLeod won M21E and Hollie Orr was 2nd (by 2 seconds after 2 days of racing) in W21E. Click on “read more…” for a few more photos. There’s lots more on the JK website.
