This is an exciting opportunity to run in an area which will be new to orienteers outwith Dumfries and Galloway. The courses make use of the parkland in the Crichton grounds, which was once the location of a traditional psychiatric hospital. So expect parkland with scattered buildings, a terrain which you are wise not to underestimate. The longer courses will loop out into the further reaches of Dumfries and will offer the competitor the challenges of transitioning between parks and urban terrain.

Longer courses will use up to 3 of the parkland areas of Dumfries with the finish being in the beautiful setting of the Crichton grounds. The majority of the longer courses will be in parkland and will also include an urban element.

Shorter courses, including the novice course, will be entirely within the Crichton grounds.

There will be 2 starts: one in the Crichton and one in a different park.

Course/class combinations are those specified by SOA for the Scottish Night Championships Course 1: M20, M Open
Course 2: W20, W Open, M Vet (40+)
Course 3: W Vet (40+), M18, M Supervet (M55+)
Course 4: W18, W Supervet (W55+), M Junior (16⁃), M Ultravet (M65+)
Course 5: W Junior (16⁃), W Ultravet (W65+), M Hypervet (M75+), W Hypervet (W75+) Course 6: Novice

The start window will run from 18:30 to 19:45. Should it be a particularly light evening the first starts may be held back for a few minutes.

Normal Scottish orienteering rules apply around eligibility to be a Scottish champion.
