Today counts towards the UK Orienteering League
Reversed Seeded Start for M21E and W21E only.
Today is a reversed seeded start for the two elite classes based upon the performance of the first five days:
The Livestream today is focused on the M/W 20L but not exclusively.
Grandtully (pronounced Grantly) is well known for white-water canoeing, including sections of grade 3 water. Grandtully is on the River Tay rather than Strathearn, but this area has long been seen as a possible orienteering venue by Event Coordinator Terry O’Brien of St Andrew's (Glasgow) Orienteers or STAG. In 2017 they celebrated their 35th Anniversary at Grandtully, using a very small part of the mapped area. Since then the area has been extended further to the north.
The A822 from Crieff passes through the Sma’ Glen – for those unable to venture further into the Highlands this is like some of the more mountainous areas of Scotland in miniature. Access up and down the A9 is also possible, but exploratory works for the dualling (upgrade) of the A9 are still expected to be in progress.
The area is close to the A9, allowing an easy departure at the end of what will be a great week of orienteering in some very different terrain.
Day 6 Overview - Grandtully - Final Edition
Grandtully has previously been connected with canoeing the rapids but there was a new type of downhill race with the final day of Strathearn 2019 in close proximity to the river. For yet another day the weather held out and the Middle Distance race was a fantastic finale to what has been a hugely successful Scottish 6 Days.
and GPS Tracking
The aim of the Livestream is to cover the breadth and depth of orienteering that we see every two years at the Scottish 6 Days. Therefore, the coverage will focus on different age classes each day. As well as the Livestream there will be GPS tracking available separately.
Please check if you have been selected to carry a tracker.
See below for the links to each days coverage.

For the main 6 Days, a full range of age classes is available, from M/W10 to M/W85. White, Yellow, Orange, Light Green, and Green courses are also available for less experienced or casual orienteers.
The starts locations are referred to by colour, these have nothing to do with the colour of courses. See the table of classes below for details.
Also, you may have noticed on the programme that we also have a touch-free finish.
