The long trip north to Lossiemouth was well worth it for two Roxburgh Reivers Orienteering Club members who became Scottish Sprint champions in their age categories.

Douglas Henderson from Corbridge retained his M65 title from last year, while Ian Maxwell, of Jedburgh won back the M55 title that he held in 2015.

The championship consisted of two sprint races, both of which included urban and forest terrain, with the times added together to determine the winners.

Douglas, pictured right, hopes to continue this good form when, along with several other Reivers, he travels to New Zealand in April to take part in the World Masters Orienteering Championships.
