The 6 event areas are geographically spread across the area, from the North Sea coastline to Highland Perthshire. The range of forested and open areas - a combination of new and familiar areas - provide Tay 2009 with perhaps the most diverse set of orienteering challenges of any Six Day Competition so far.
The 6 areas are:
- Day 1: Dalrulzion, Sunday 2nd August.
- A brand new area for 2009 - plantation forest and moorland, and intricate rock and contour detail throughout.
- Day 2: Kinnoull and Deuchny, Monday 3rd August.
- A well known local area, right on the edge of Perth and a real mixture of natural oak and birch and plantation forest; with a complex network of paths.
- Day 3: Tullochroisk, Tuesday 4th August.
- Returning to the venue of the Jan Kjellstrom 2000 Relays. Classic Highland Perthshire orienteering, technically and physically challenging.
