The Lewis clan's performances were strongest at the middle distance races at Dundurn and Grandtully, where the controls are closer together.
Jonathan and Issy achieved their best results there, while Karen's and Ollie's best runs overall were at Grandtully and Annabelle's at Dundurn, where she achieved Silver standard.
Issy was interviewed at the end of her run at Culteuchar. She was asked about how she got into orienteering, what she liked about it and the progression through the ranks.
Issy appears after about 1 hour 35- the videos are three hours long each day!
