Scottish 6 Days rest day report
With a day off from the competition of the event, orienteers enjoyed days of Sprint Orienteering, TrailO, and many other attractions across Strathearn and beyond. For others it was a case of setting up for the next few days – expect a surprise with the Day 4 race arena.
Scottish 6 Days third day report
Beautiful weather, a stunning race arena and some of the best orienteering terrain in Scotland. Today’s event near St Fillans had it all, with the added attraction of a World Ranking Event Middle Distance race (and Middle Distance for us all which was a welcome relief after two tough days).
Scottish 6 Days second day report
Day 2 of Strathearn 2010 took place in Edinchip – a
brand new area to orienteering and credit goes to Allan Downie (Tayside
Orienteers) and Terry O’Brien (Event Coordinator) for their exploratory efforts
finding new terrain that was under everyone’s noses all the time.
Scottish 6 Days first day report
Auchingarrich proved a tough and testing area for the first
day of Strathearn 2019, as orienteers from around the world enjoyed challenging
terrain on a day with sunshine and a light breeze.
