April 2020

Hello Cosmics

How are you all getting on with lockdown?

If you are bored here are a few online things to keep you entertained.....

Ewen has also set you a real life challenge for anyone who lives in Aberdeen

"For those of you in town the challenge is to visit six different Parks - run from home to your chosen Start - take selfie with Park sign in background - pick your route to the next Park - repeat selfie - repeat for total of six different Parks. NB - Only Westburn or Victoria (not both). Possible Parks - Johnston Gardens, Hazlehead, Stewart, Seaton, Duthie, Allan (Cults), Kincorth Hill, Loirston Country.

Post time and route - plot on Mapometer to get distance and climb (I don't do Strava and Mapometer will give best route)"

I suggest posting your selfies on the Cosmic Facebook page to inspire others to try the challenge for themselves

Scottish Athletics Relays

SAL have also got in on the "virtual" act and are holding a virtual relay. Any takers will have to be affiliated to SAL though.
