Orienteering fans across Scotland will be able to watch on all TV platforms, with the rest of the UK able to watch via BBC iPlayer.

The Chasing Sprint is two-part spectator-friendly event, which should make a great spectacle for those watching in person and via TV. “The Prologue” – a traditional time trial format – will be filmed in the afternoon, with highlights broadcast on the Adventure Show just before “The Chase” is broadcast live.

Start times for The Chase are determined by performances in the prologue, with the first across the line in each class being the winner.
