Press release from the World Orienteering Championships 2015 organiser:

We are pleased to announce that subject to final agreements with landowners and other bodies that Darnaway and Glen Affric will be used to stage Long, Middle and Relay World Orienteering Championships races in 2015. Forres and Nairn will be used to stage the Sprint Relay, Sprint Qualifiers and Sprint Final. Embargoes as published in Bulletin 1 remain in place for all other areas.

For the many competitors wishing to spectate and run in the Scottish 6 Days we can announce that in order to give orienteers the opportunity to compete on exactly the same terrain as WOC that the format will be two days followed by an action packed rest day then a further four days. The Scottish 6 Days will be staged in Keppernach, Darnaway, Glen Strathfarrar with the final day in Glen Affric. These areas offer a mix of different forest types including deciduous woodland and ancient Caledonian forest, in some beautiful and spectacular settings.”This timing will allow competitors to think forward to 2015 on the last day of this year’s successful competition.
