World Orienteering Day


11 May 2016 is World Orienteering Day when it’s hoped to beat the Guinness World Record of people participating in orienteering on one day.  The current record is 207,979 from 2003.

So, come along to the Millers Knowes in Hawick for a sprint race and be part of that record attempt.   More details – HERE


Traquair Sprint Series No. 1

Remember that the sprint series kicks off on Wednesday evening at Traquair.  For this sprint event only we’ll also have a Yellow course.  This is because we already have the maps printed from our postponed event there in December.
