We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the extra volunteers who answered our last minute request to help with parking - we couldn't have done it without you!
Please read important information about parking at Glen Affric.
They think it’s all over – it is now, it’s six. Another excellent day at Glen Affric, with an amended parking plan following some unexpected issues as the last orienteers left through Tomich on Day 5. Apologies go to those who were a long way from the arena in the Tomich Hotel car park but hopefully with flexibility at the starts you enjoyed your runs over some world-class terrain.
Information Update for Day 6, Sat 8th August
Day 6 Parking
Thank you to everyone who made Day 5's parking so successful, especially the last minute volunteers. We could not have managed this without you. I hope you enjoyed a great final day of the World Championships, that you didn't find today's courses too tough and that you are looking forward to running on the World Championships area on Saturday.
Please could you aim to arrive at Tomich about 90 minutes before your start time.
The plan for Saturday's parking is similar to Friday, although we have been asked to reduce the number of vehicles using the south side of the glen, and make more use of the parking at the Tomich Hotel.
- We plan to park the majority of cars in the arena car park.
- Campervans will be directed to the same car park as today.
- 4x4 cars will be directed to the south side, possibly using the campervan car park.
- We will probably park single occupancy cars at Tomich Hotel, and ask you to get a lift to the arena from other orienteers.
Traders & caterers will be similar to Friday.
As Friday, please obey marshals, pace your arrival and be patient if we have problems.
The times are now available for the Elite start list.
Important note for all Main Competition days
Bus passengers have been allocated one of two groups, called “BUS1” and “BUS2”. Because space is limited, it is essential that you travel at the correct bus time for your group. Your bus ticket will show which group you are in. On some days, BUS2 is earlier than BUS1.
Buses will run from the Campsite (Bught Park) and the Event Centre (Eden Court). The stop for Eden Court is on the south side of the theatre, on Bishop’s Road.
Bus passengers should collect a copy of the daily newsletter from a box at the door of the Competitor Shelter in the arena. There is one copy per family or group.
We are afraid that there are now no more bus passes available to purchase for travel to and from the events. The full capacity of buses has now been reached with those competitors who pre-booked through the on-line booking system.
