The SOA has produced a Good Practice Guide to Orienteering and the Environment in Scotland. The document is written for orienteers, and is intended to assist in securing access to land for events, particularly where there are concerns about nature conservation.
The Scottish Orienteering Association (SOA) believes in 'clean orienteering' and works in partnership with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) and International Federation to ensure that the integrity of orienteering is protected.
