Saturday 23rd May, Individuals: Dunachtonmore & Balavil, near Kingussie

Two superb areas which have been combined to provide challenging and contrasting orienteering styles. The terrain ranges from super fast open moor interspersed with juniper and birch forest to conifer forest with intricate contour detail and plenty of rock features.

General information

All courses have 3 legs. Competitive teams will comprise 3 members of the same club.  Non-Scottish clubs are eligible. Teams comprising members of different clubs will be non-competitive, except for ‘alliances’ of neighbouring clubs (see below). Teams comprising competitors of inappropriate age class, or with runners running more than once, may take part but will be non-competitive.

Any combination of sexes and ages is allowed.  All senior classes start together and the handicap winners will be the first team from any of classes 3-7 to finish.  Juniors and 21s may also compete in the ‘veteran’ handicap.  Each team member in the handicap is allotted points as follows:

Handicap points

M14- 6 W14- 6 M35 1 W35 3 M60 6 W60 8
M16 4 W16 5 M40 2 W40 4 M65 7 W65 9
M18 2 W18 4 M45 3 W45 5 M70+ 8 W70+ 10
M20 1 W20 3 M50 4 W50 6        
M21 0 W21 2 M55 5 W55 7        

The courses are as follows:

1. Men’s Open A A A 6. Handicap: 15+ point C D C
2. Women Open B B B 7. Handicap: 18+ point D D C
3. Handicap: 6+ point A B C 8. Junior: Total BOF age 48- LG O LG
4. Handicap: 9+ point B C C 9 Junior: Total BOF age 40- Y Y O
5. Handicap: 12+ point B D C Ad hoc teams are welcome on all courses.      

Courses A, B, C and D will be TD5 standard. Because of the constraints of the area, courses may be slightly longer than usual (subject to controlling). LG, O and Y correspond to the colour coded system.  Teams may run in a longer class if they wish.  Weak teams may run in a shorter class but will be non-competitive.

Ad hoc teams and alliances of neighbouring clubs may be accepted though a team which appears much stronger than their likely competition will be non-competitive.  

Typically, two neighbouring clubs will be allowed to compete as an “alliance” if they have insufficient competitors to make a full team. This may include e.g. the only 1 or 2 juniors in a club with many adults.  “Neighbouring” will be interpreted flexibly for far-travelled clubs
