John Muir Country Park, Dunbar  Saturday 26 June 2021

JMCP is a wonderful area for orienteering. The woods have an excellent path network and the fringe of dunes covered by spiky marram grass provides a technical challenge although we will not be using Spike Island on this occasion.

Pre-event Information

There will be courses for orienteers of all ages from White, Yellow, Orange and Light Green. You must pre-enter online.

East Lothian Orienteers are assisting in the organising and the planning for this, the final day of the 6 Days so put it in your diary to come and help as well as to orienteer!

The area is predominantly open grassland and heath with a good measure of bogs and boulder fields and is in the most superb setting.

ESOA Championships & SoSOL
Vogrie Country Park
Sunday 28 November 2021

ESOA Championships & SoSOL  Vogrie Country Park  Sunday 28 November 2021

Because of the current covid restrictions it was not possible to hold the East of Scotland Orienteering Championships in November 2020 as orienteers from other clubs would be unable to travel to the event.

This event is now planned to take place in November 2021 instead.

Vogrie Country Park is a woodland estate managed by Midlothian Council.  The Tyne Water runs through the park in a steep sided valley which can provide a physical challenge.  Vogrie usually hosts a Saturday parkrun and has a popular playground but its varied terrain and 12 mile path network make this a popular venue for orienteering, particularly for those new to the sport.  For the more experienced there are plenty of ways to navigate between controls both on paths and off them!

For the East of Scotland Orienteering Championships we are grateful to the ranger service and neighbouring landowners who have allowed us to greatly extend the range of the map into the former golf course and into some areas of disused quarries which provide regions of intricate contour detail.
