You don’t have to use the Maprun app –  we can provide guidance in setting it up on your phone if you haven’t tried it before, but printed maps will be available.
The event will follow orienteering Covid-19 protocols (including competitors must observe social distancing before and after their run).  Starts will be 6.00-6.30pm,
Cost members £2 (£1 junior) or non-members £3 (£2 junior) - no cash handling on the night, payable before or afterwards to Clyde account, will provide details after entry.

Clyde have a number of courses available that you can run any time you want to. They are listed on the SOA website along with all the other courses in Scotland.

Results are here. Thanks to Emma Wilson for planning courses offering some tricky route choices, Rachel Wilson for organising and filling out all the Covid-19 paperwork, Dave Robertson for printing the maps, and to everyone who turned out on a surprisingly pleasant evening.

CLYDE Evening Erskine Urban Race Thursday 27 August

Covid Officer, registration and competitor

We are delighted to announce the success of the first post-lockdown Clyde race. Results are available here.

We obviously had to make some adjustments to comply with the (very sensible) SOA covid rules and guidelines. In particular, the event was only for club members and you had to pre-enter so that we could allocate start times and avoid congestion. Full details below.
We hope you enjoyed the race, despite the sometimes torrential weather.
Thanks to all who have read many guidelines and filled in many forms to make this possible.
