WALTON Chasers took medals against the rest of the world at the Scottish Six Days which took place just East of Inverness on the Moray Coast.
Gemma Cairns-Smith and John Robinson were the Walton stars of the tough six day event which attracted competitors from all over the world
With two years before the World Orienteering Championships arrive at Inverness it was a chance for the Chasers to test out the wooded and sand-dune course.
The six days of competition is consists of three days of racing, one day off, then three more days of competition, with the best four days to count towards the overall total.
Robinson finished second overall on M60S, while Cairns-Smith went one better on W16B by finishing first overall.
Other notable top 20 places include Iain Stamp just outside the medals in fourth on M21S, Kelvin Dawson, seventh on M35S, Bob Dredge, 14th on M60L, Cath Williams, fifth on W40S, Tracy Craig, 19th on W45S and Christine Collins, 13th on W50S.
A special mention went to Matt Hartland who recently suffered a back strain playing rugby.
This caused him to run non-competitively on a shorter course than normal and still run well enough to win each day.
Walton Chasers summer training is now on each Tuesday at 7pm from locations around Cannock Chase and new participants are always welcome.
