Trophy Presentation

We will be presenting the trophies for the Moray & Nairn Schools Orienteering League soon after 1200 to the wining schools - Forres Academy and West End Primary. All pupils of these schools who ave taken part in any Schools League event in 2017 are invited to come up to receive their trophy. We are expecting several members of the Scottish Elite Development Squad to be at the event. Hopefully they will be able to assist with the award presentation.


Schools League Info

Anyone attending School in Moray or Nairn is automatically entered in to the Schools League competitIon. Remember to give the name of your school on your entry form. The best 4 competitors from each school count for the teams.

Schools League competitors can run on either course, but secondary and primary pupils will be scored separately. See the 'Leagues' menu for schools competition information.

Please register as an individual, but you're welcome to run with a friend. For groups of 3 or more running together, only 2 individual times can count for your school team score. This is to make it fair for the majority of more experienced juniors who do the course on their own or as pairs. It's the best 4 times that count for the Schools League - you can see the full rules and information HERE.

Press and Photography

Previews and post-event reports for all our events appear in the local press. We often take photos at events that may be used in the press, but will not name anyone under 18 without parental consent. You can see previous press reports in our press album on Facebook.

Information for parents "shadowing" junior runners

Adults shadowing juniors only need pay for the junior entry. Please allow your son/daughter to do most of the navigation themselves. If you are doing all the navigation for them (ie they're chasing you round the course), please let us know at registration so we can note you down as "non competitive" or register you as an adult.

We encourage adult "shadowers" to help out if you see your children going obviously, wrong or getting stuck, but please wait for them to ask you for help before stepping in. That's all part of the learning process and helps build their self-confidence. This also makes it fair for the children that do the course all by themselves. Thank you.
