Event descriptionThe Scottish Championships individual is now a World Ranking Event and is a classic long distance event. This will be on the Saturday and the relays (teams of 3) are on Sunday. Rannoch was previously used for the JK in 2000. Camping available near assembly. Due to the remote location public transport is difficult but possible, car recommended.
Terrain descriptionRannoch Forest is a superb area, a very large and mostly runnable plantation forest with vague contoury bits, detailed contoury bits and patches of complex vegetation detail. It is largely a gentle north-facing slope, aside from a whacking great river gorge across the middle which should make for some interesting route choices.
Training possibilitiesCompetitors interested in possibilities for training should contact the organiser.
