Strathearn 2019 - Scottish 6 Days

Sunday 28 July - Saturday 3 August 2019

Strathearn 2019 offers the greatest variety of different orienteering terrain seen for many years at the Scottish 6 Days.

The next entry date for Strathearn 2019 is approaching fast (Sunday 30th June).  However, if still undecided we will be accepting limited late entries and entries at the event. For the first time we will be livestreaming the event for those who cannot be there or who are looking to replay their "match of the day".   Though focus will be on the Elites on the two World Ranking Events, we will be covering selected classes (Juniors and Masters) on other days. Karel Jonak and his team, the International Orienteering Fedration's TV crew of choice, are flying over specially to film with commentary provided by Katherine Bett. We will be looking for volunteers willing to wear GPS trackers (with assistance from ScotJOS, the Scottish Junior Orienteering Squad). Accommodation options include the event campsite at Comrie Croft, Crieff Hydro and not too far over the hills Highland Perthshire or the University of Stirling. A shuttle bus service will be running from limited stops every day to help get you to these fantastic areas.
