TrailO was in Culbin Forest on the rest day morning.
Venue: Culbin Forest, Wellhill car park.
Grid ref: NH997614
Signed with brown signs ‘Culbin Forest’ from the A96 just west of Forres or just east of Brodie. Note that this is NOT the same car park as used for Day 3.
A £2 parking charge is payable. Toilets, including a disabled unit, are available in the car park.
Late entries/EOD: Pre-entries close on June 30. After this date, entries may be requested by email to until July 17. All entries received by this date will be guaranteed a map. After this date entries will depend on map availability. Entry fees after June 30 are £9/£3.
Registration/start: Follow signs from the North corner of the car park for 1.2k to the registration/start area. Note that there is a rough section of track shortly after leaving the car park, which can be avoided by leaving the car park via a forest road from the Southwest corner and following this round to the right to join the route to Registration/Start.
Map: Culbin Forest, 1:10,000 updated 2013, enlarged to 1:4,000 with some mapping enhancements for TrailO around control sites. 2.5m contours.
Course: There is one course only. 20 controls, varying in technical difficulty from easy to elite. 3 timed controls at the end of the course. Course length 1.8k, time limit 114 minutes.
Starts: Start times from 10.00 at 1 minute intervals will be allocated competitors entered by July 17. The start list will be available on the Moray website from July 20, and at Information during the event week. Late entries and EOD will start after the pre-entered competitors; probably from 11.15 but an update will be given after the start list is published. Last start at 12.30.
Wheelchair users: We regret that we are not able to provide escorts for wheelchair users. The course generally follows good level tracks which should be easily managed by wheelchairs, but there are one or two short steeper sections. Wheelchair users may bring their own escorts to help them negotiate these sections. Escort may give physical assistance but must not take part in decision making at controls.
Safety: Even if participants do not complete the course they must go to Finish to record their finish time and hand in their control card.
A first aid kit will be available at Registration.
All participants take part at their own risk.
Officials: Planners: Beryl Blackhall, Anne Hickling; Organiser: Roger Scrutton; Controller: Rob Hickling.
General information: For the benefit of those inexperienced in TrailO, a demonstration control will be provided before the start. Help and advice will be available here. All competitors are advised to read the ‘Information for Competitors’ document, and newcomers to TrailO should study the IOF document ‘Technical Introduction to TrailO for experienced foot orienteers’.
