Event Details

This event is very informal and uses the same maps that were used in the Easter holiday orienteering week "Mini Moray 2013".

As well as being a club night where you can meet up with other club members for a a run and a chat, it's also aimed at beginners, both junior and adults. The idea is to let you have a go at orienteering using a very similar map to what you will get in the 6 Days. Ideal for any members who would like to introduce a friend to the sport in pleasant relaxing surroundings.

We would like to have entries in by 30th June to help with all the preparation work before the 6-Days starts on 28th July. This event should help give you an idea of what course you might like to enter.

There will be a few experienced orienteers around to show you what do do if you're not sure. We'll have proper electronic timing as usual.

Please arrive by 6.15pm as we hope to get cleared up promptly.

Note to club members

Some people have asked whether helping out is allowed because of the embargo on competing in the same areas that will be used this summer. Orienteering rules say that people shouldn't try to gain an unfair advantage by "recce-ing" the competiton area beforehand. Please rest assured that by coming along to help out you won't be banned from taking part in Moray 2013!

Courses available: 

White (Very simple, very fun, 2 Km)

Yellow (Quite easy, 2.3 Km)

Orange (Moderate with a few short-cut options - 3.5 Km)

Punch Type: 
Event Prices

Entry £2 for all. £1 if you tackle a second course afterwards.
