Chasers at the Scottish 6 Days 2019

17 Chasers raced in the bi-annual Scottish 6 Days, this year held in Strathearn in mid Scotland.  The weather was incredibly kind and it was warm, dry and sunny which made the event a great holiday festival of orienteering.  The areas were good, with some real technical challenges, and pretty good underfoot conditions.  Even the infamous Craig a Barns, last used for JK2012,  was a pleasant surprise this time around!
We had some great performances, with 3 Chasers in the top 10 overall positions:
Dan Findlay-Robinson came =1st on M35S (pictured – credit Andy Johnson), Rhys Findlay-Robinson was an impressive 4th on M21E, and Sally Hughes was 9th on W45S.
We had plenty of other top 10 positions on individual days:
M21E – Rhys picking up a 3rd and 2nd – no mean feet in a strong international field.  M35S – Dan won Days 1, 3 and 4.  M55S – Andy got a 4th and 8th, M65S – John 2nd and 6th, W16A – Holly S and 8th, 9th, and 10th, W20S – Holly H a 5th, 8th and 8th, W45S – Sally 5th, 8th, and 6th, and in W50S – Alison a 6th place.
For the first time, the events were live streamed on the internet, so if you want to see what you missed, head to the Scottish 6 Days website and catch up.
We’ll all reconvene at the next Scottish 6 days in Lochaber (Fort William) in summer 2021!
