Junior European Cup 2016

30 September - 2 October

Thanks to 170 athletes and 30 coaches from 17 countries for supporting JEC 2016. I do believe it has been a success. We held three races over three days and the sun shone for almost all the time! We hope we provided Nations with an opportunity to test their athletes and provide a high-level experience. A relatively small group of people made this event happen. A few things bind them all together - the foresight, energy and determination of Scottish Orienteers.
We wish you all the best in your preparations for next year and JWOC2017 and we hope you enjoyed Scotland so much that we’ll see you return a few weeks after to Royal Deeside 2017!
