Pre Event Info

This Muir of Dinnet event is not to be missed, offering a true test of technical ability.  With a complex moraine landscape and higher parts having a profusion of gullies, rocks and crags, the terrain varies between very fast open moor and clean forest floors to more physically demanding steeper heathery slopes.

The forest area is fairly sheltered so we hope that the weather won't cause any problems though competitors will likely have to carry a waterproof (in addition to a compulsory spare torch) for the night race.

Make a weekend of it!  Scottish Orienteering Urban League at Cove, Aberdeen is being held earlier in the afternoon and then there's the first CompassPoint Scottish Orienteering League of 2019 at Birsemore on Sunday 24th.
