Royal Deeside 2017

Many CLYDE athletes spent the first week of August competing at Royal Deeside 2017, 6 days of fantastic competition in some of the best orienteering terrain in the UK.

There were lots of great CLYDE performances, notably Alastair McLeod’s win in the Men’s Premier class M21E, Robin Orr and Donald Petrie were 2nd in M55L and M60L, respectively, and the Mccartney family competed in their first big races and performed extremely well in their first exposure to the tough and technical Deeside forests.

The full set of CLYDE results are below, and the full results, with lots of opportunities for further analysis, are on the Royal Deeside website. Many of our juniors have just moved up to more technical courses, so congratulations to Ewan, Alastair, Michael, Louis and Kirsten who all performed extremely well at their new level.

Some photos from one of the starts here.
