2nd - 8th August 2015
The 2015 event was based around Inverness, with three of the days in Moray and the other three in the glens SW of Inverness. The venues for this year were chosen in order to allow competitors to compete in the Scottish 6 Days event on world championship areas and also to have the opportunity to spectate at the WOC2015 events as much as possible.
The areas used provided a wide variety of terrain, ranging from ancient Caledonian Forest to open moorland, birch and beech woodland, and complex moraine areas. This year, Scottish 6 Days competitors were also be able to compete in urban events. These events did not, however, count towards their overall scores for the 6-Days.
The 2013 Scottish 6 Day Event, Moray2013, has been nominated as a finalist in the Sports category of the 2014 Scottish Event Awards. The winners of the awards will be announced at a ceremony in Glasgow on October 8th. The 6 Day Company directors are delighted by this nomination which recognises the outstanding success of last year's event and the efforts of all those involved in staging it.
John passed away in the early hours of this morning, at Caritas Christi hospice in Melbourne. He took a turn for the worse on Tuesday night, and up until then he had been alert and lucid. John's recent book about the history of the Scottish 6 Days, "A Few Surplus Maps" demonstrated his passion for orienteering in Scotland, his enthusiasm will be missed.
