Event Details
You can now tell us you are coming by using our Survey Monkey Link
The start and finish are approx. 250m from assembly/car park
The courses on offer are provisional, there are more courses than usual.  However, this is to make the most of a very good area.


The event will be sign posted from the A96, west of Forres.


Registration and assembly are at the Wellhill car park (Near Kintessack) at grid reference NH 997 615. This is a public carpark and FCS parking charges apply (£1.50 for 3 hours).  Please consider to sharing transport where possible.  

Nearest Toilets

There are toilets at the car park
Courses available: 

The courses on offer are (provisional): 

White 1.9km:  A nice easy walk along a variety of paths
Orange 3.1km:  The fastest routes will cut corners between paths to find controls off the paths- sometimes using other line features to navigate.
Light Green 3.6km:  Some controls in tricky areas, but with paths or other line features nearby you won't go too far wrong for too long!
Short Green 3.4km:  A difficult course but not too long- test yourself in those contours!
Blue 7km:  Mentally and physically demanding in some really tricky areas for fit and experienced orienteers...get your money's worth!
There are more courses than usual.  However, this is to make the most of a very good area.
A compass is very useful for the Orange course and necessary for all the harder ones.
So, if you normally do yellow with a friend or parents, you might try the White on your own (or shadowed at a distance by a parent).  If you normally do a yellow on your own, you could team up with someone to tackle the orange together.  Just ask us for advice.

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.
