Pre Event Info

Braes was mapped many years ago but for some reason never used until interest from Logie Coldstone school led to the map being redrawn and updated in 2017. It is a delightful flat and runnable area with soft contours that could make for some tricky navigation at night.

Everyone welcome including non night afficionados. We wil have Logie Coldstone hall available for registration, warming up and refuelling after the race and hope that everyone will take time to stop and socialise. The World Schools fund-raisers will have soup, drinks and cakes on offer.

Explanation of colour courses

  • Yellow use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams. They are mainly used by under 12’s and family groups.
  • Orange progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.
  • Light Green are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and point features.
  • Green are used mostly by experienced under 18’s and adults wanting a short but challenging course with a very hard navigational difficulty.
  • Blue are a longer, more physically demanding course in comparison to the green. The distances are more varied between controls and the course attracts experienced orienteers.
  • Brown & Black are very physically demanding and have a very hard navigational difficulty. They are for experienced orienteers only.
  • Score means visiting as many controls as possible in any order in a specific time, like 45mins.
