Event Details

Day 5 is Moravian's day for helping to run the week-long Scottish 6 Days Event. If you can only make one day of the 6 Days, try to make it this one. You'll get a run yourself as well as the satisfaction of doing your bit to support the huge volunteer effort that makes Scotland's biggest orienteering event happen.

While all our serious competitors will have pre-entered, you can get entry on the day for the colour coded courses so you can experience the thrill of being part of it.

If you're new to orienteering or have never been to a 6 Days, this might help:
