Further Information

FVO is Forty this year. To help celebrate, join us for two simple colour-coded style events on the terrific – and rarely used – Rannoch. As well as excellent orienteering, this weekend will offer great socialising opportunities. Join us in a BBQ on the Saturday night when we will celebrate our birthday.

The two races on one of central Scotland’s best areas are:

  • Saturday - Middle Race (30-35 minute winning time for TD5 courses)
  • Sunday - Long Race

For the long race, course and lengths are:

  • Black 13.4km;
  • Brown 10.0km;
  • Blue 6.2km;
  • Green 4.1km;
  • Light Green 3.1km;
  • Orange 2.5km;
  • Yellow 1.8km

While there is no White course, competitors will be able to shadow young juniors around the Yellow before or after their own runs. String courses will be provided both days.

The event will be informal with be punching starts on both days. Start times expected to be 1200-1500 on Saturday and 1000-1300 on Sunday.
