How it Went
7 teams entered the competition. They included teams from orienteering clubs, professional walking party leaders, and the scouts. Competition was impressive and the result was very close with the Lagan Valley Orienteers team just beating their local rivals by an incredibly narrow 2 points.
Special mention should be made of “The Elite” team made up of some local scouts who though they didn’t win put in a terrific show and I suspect had the best fun of all the teams.
The competitors jointly raised over £300 in sponsorship, and for that sort of money the Mountain Rescue Team members were happy to stay awake and on the hill with the competitors until nearly 1am on Sunday morning.
