Event descriptionThe biennial Scottish 6-Day Orienteering competition ("the 6-Days") was first held in 1977, and takes place in a different area of Scotland each time. As the largest orienteering event in the UK, each 6-Days event typically attracts over 3500 competitors plus additional families and friends. The competition is designed to provide the highest quality orienteering over the week, in a relaxed atmosphere, and aims to appeal all ages and skill levels, from elite athletes to newcomers.
Terrain descriptionThe 6 event areas are geographically spread across Tayside, from forested duneland on the North Sea coastline to classic Highland forest and moorland in Perthshire. The range of forested and open areas - a combination of new and familiar areas - provides Tay 2009 with perhaps the widest range of orienteering challenges of any Six Day Competition so far.
Training possibilitiesThere will be ample opportunities for training in areas similar to the terrain used for the competition. Further details will be provided nearer the time.
