The Championships will be based in Inverness during August 2015 and will utilise the world class terrain along the Moray coast and in the Cairngorms National Park. The Scottish 6 Days will run in parallel to the Championships and will bring 5000 competitors to the area boosting the local economy by an estimated £2 million.

Chris approached the 6 Day company several months ago offering to be the official photographer of the event.

He had them uploaded within hours of leaving the assembly field every day. You can visit his Photo Gallery here or click on the links on each of the day results pages.
