SOUL 1, Edinburgh, Jan 25

Big Weekend

Edinburgh University present the Edinburgh Big Weekend on the 24th-26th of January. This forms a weekend of terrific Edinburgh based orienteering with the City race on the Saturday and a classic orienteering even in Holyrood Park on the Sunday. Details on the EUOC website. Results for the weekend and here are the btoSOUL series scores after round 1

The city race provides competitors with fine technical urban orienteering whilst taking in the best sights Edinburgh has to offer.

The terrain consists of large road network interspersed with narrow alleyways, detailed housing and parkland. There are also large height differences for a city centre and some cobbled streets.

With a 2nd visit to Edinburgh on the cards in October for “Race the Castles 2014” this year’s Big Weekend provides a sneak preview of Edinburgh for anyone targeting Race the Castles, but without the risk of breaking the embargo as it visits a different part of the map. Edinburgh Urban Race always attracts a quality field so get your entries in now.
