Day 3: Dundurn & Cnoc a’Mhadaidh
Tuesday 30th July
The other end of the loch from Edinchip! Dundurn & Cnoc a'Mhadaidh is another new area for orienteering, with a very technical and mixed forest including oak woodland, beech and conifer plantations and virtually no paths or tracks. Less technical courses are likely to take in parts of the adjacent St Fillans Golf Course. The course is surprisingly level but is surrounded by towering and craggy hills and the imposing St Fillan’s Hill – a must for a control site.
The Livestream today is focused on the M/W 21 Elite but not exclusively.
Further explore St Fillans Golf Club, experience the Clubhouse catering team Nutritious & Delicious: Good value, reasonably priced, home cooking. Homemade soup, sandwiches, hot dishes, salads and cakes. Fresh coffee and friendly staff.
Day 3 is a World Ranking Event.
WRE seeding uses 30th June world rankings
The area is wholly within the Drummond Estates. The Drummond Castle Gardens, just a few miles south of Crieff, is in the list of the finest gardens in Europe and well worth a visit.
The A85, running east-west through nearby St Fillans, has a series of very sharp bends to the east of Dundurn so please take care.
World Ranking Event Embargo Details
This embargo applies to all potential WRE competitors (runners, team leaders, coaches, doctors, etc.) as well as to all others with strong links to Elite squads. Embargoes also apply to anyone intending to compete at the Scottish 6 Days.
No orienteering of any kind can take place in these embargoed areas until after Strathearn 2019.
Officials involved with the organisation of Strathearn 2019 are allowed to enter areas as appropriate e.g. race arenas and parking areas. If in any doubt please contact Colin Matheson for authority.
Note that the embargoes do not apply to public roads running by or through the areas as defined on Google Maps.
Please see Google Maps for details of the embargoed areas.
Each day at the Scottish 6 days we will be tracking selected runners. On day 3 and 5 we will track the top elite runners and on the other days we will track one age group class. Tracking may be used as part of the Live Streaming broadcast each day and will be available on line later to re run and compare routes.
Please see the attached listing to see if you are on the tracking list. Please collect and return trackers and tracker vests from the media tent by the Finish except Day 2 when near the start, Day 3 and 5 when trackers and WRE numbers will be issued at the WRE Warm Up area near the Elite Start.
