THE &;Back to Basics&; ROUTE
Its a secret! But as its a Sunday its a biggie. ~10Miles so expect to be out for 90mins or thereabouts. Come appropriately dressed for the weather, route on and off road.
 
SO WHAT IS THE CAAC PAPS ?

It is a series of races pieced together annually to encourage people to take to the streets, trails, hills and beyond. All the events require some modicum of navigation but all of a level that both beginners and expert navigators will appreciate. The series whilst competitive is most definitely low key and hopefully fun!
 
As an example the inaugural year of 2011, included one point to point race where at each checkpoint each runner was required to note down the answer to a question which could be found only at the checkpoint. The second race was more hilly and seen a relatively well marked route followed over some rough terrain in the lowland Pentlands. The series itself proved to be successful with the membership and over the course of the series Alex Cumming proved himself to be a worthy winner. Both events were followed by a bit of a social in a nearby venue.
 
In 2012 the series has been expanded to 6 events of which you must complete 4 to &;complete&; the series. The finale of the series each year is the CAAC Down&;N&;Up, an already well established pre-Christmas bookend to the year.
 
The CAAC PAPs series is open to athletes aged 11 and up, all athletes under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
 
All entrants must adhere to any rules of specific events and declare they are responsible for themselves and no liability lies with myself or the club.

Did a final recce of the

Did a final recce of the route tonight. Quickest route i think is roughly 8.9Miles. However i think theres maybe a few shortcuts to be had. I do caveat that with the fact there is most definitely &;longcuts&; too! ;]

I&;d maybe take Saturday easy after the BR5 on Friday ... The CAAC PAPs is bringing the pain this weekend! See Figure 1. &;One Minute Hill Aftermath&;

Timdog and Bezza added there names to the SignUp list alongside in person. Anymore for anymore?

There&;s &;shortcuts&;, there&;s &;longcuts&; and then there&;s the BC route!!

Nice picture of a post 1min hill session....I was gonna ask if anyone knew who was in it but I know the bums of the guys too well! ;) From the left I&;m guessing BC, Calum, COB, Mozza and Pilks. Am I correct??

Don&;t think i&;ve ever seen that tree on the one minute hills. Pretty sure it&;s usually out of sight for me! Might be a berry bum?

Who took  it? More importantly why weren&;t they doing the hill session too instead of mucking about with a camera when there&;s work to be done?

Anyhow, looking forward to Sunday. 20p for anyone who does Black Rock*, Edinburgh to North Berwick and CAAC PAPS.

*No going home early, must be on the last train to qualify.
