The event is organised by the Masterplan Adventure team of Graham Gristwood, Chris Smithard, Kris Jones and Fanni Gyurko, who between them have countless top international and domestic sprint results.

There is coaching available for those who want it on Thursday and Friday (3 courses each day), or just the opportunity to do lots of orienteering for those who don't! In the evenings there are talks and Q&A sessions about different aspects of sprint orienteering. Then at the weekend, there are 3 races on new areas - including a round of the Scottish Urban Orienteering League, and 3 World Ranking Events for the elite classes. Saturday night sees another talk and Q&A by a top International Sprint Orienteer about their experiences, followed by a ceilidh (traditional Scottish dancing).

This is an ideal event for people who either want to learn from some of the best sprint orienteers in the world, sharpen up and improve their own sprint orienteering skills, or just would like to do 9 sprint courses in 4 days!
