STAG SoSOL 3 - Greenhead Moss, Wishaw- Sunday 12th January 2014

Update @ 9.30pm
Thank-you for your support to-day. I think I have sorted out all the gremlins & thanks to Robin Strain who will be setting up Routegadget, Winsplits etc on our behalf.

With a Club Membership of 12 at the last count, the day started off with 50% of STAG & Ross McLennan the Controller but we lost 3 of the STAG married men at approximately 11.30am when their other halves summoned them.

Regardless, with the support of Patricia McLaughlin & Gerry Thomson the event continued smoothly. I have nothing but praise also for Ross and he quite rightly stood up against my original White Course which was more of a Pale Yellow. His help over and above what is needed was much appreciated as was the additional bonus of Charlie & Trish Woodward (AYROC) being able to give a hand bringing the controls in.Back in Glasgow by 3.30pm.

Whereas I buckled for the weans, I did not agree when Ross suggested that the long 1st Leg was unfair because it was the 1st Leg. I would be interested in views & also in seeing what routes were taken.

I shall post Ross’ comments once received.

Organiser/Planner – Terry O’Brien, STAG. Controller – Ross McLennan, FVO.

Terrain description

Situated to the south-west of Newmains & north-west of the village of Waterloo, Greenhead Moss is a cracking wee area with a terrific mix of terrain & old mineworkings.

For those of you who have never been to the “Serengeti” this is your chance !!

The mapped area covers over 270 acres of land incorporating a wide variety of terrain, an extensive path network and as the term “Moss” implies not a great deal of climbing. Runnability at this time of year is at its best.

Throughout the area there are several monuments and the Stratographic Stairway & Ramp is worth closer examination after your run.
