ROXBURGH REIVERS Orienteering Club runners produced another set of good results at the East of Scotland Championships which were held at Deans and Dechmont, near Livingston, on Sunday.

In almost perfect sunny conditions, the event was a slightly unusual mix of quiet streets and alleyways, parkland and woods.

This suited the fastest runners, but there were still mistakes for the unwary.

The new Area Champions are: Karen Maxwell W16, Kirstin Maxwell W20, Fiona Forrest W35 and Lindsey Knox W50. Ian Maxwell and Barry Veitch finished runners-up in their classes.

The next local event is at Gordon Community Woodland on Saturday, November 19. More details at www.roxburghreivers.org.uk
