Map / Terrain
An area with very detailed contour information. It has defined boundaries so there are no worries about being lost!
After gaining confidence with the contour only map last week (which is also available this week if you missed it), explore the area further with the 'full' map at 1:7500. Work on using 'ups' for navigation.
The course will use a variety of terrain and take you on a route around Loch Vaa. Course length 2.7km. Map scale 1:7500 to aid interpretation in the dark!
There will also be 'run' maps available. Run around the paths and tracks, 'virtual controls' (nothing out). Distance 5.3km, can be shortened to 3km. Map scale 1:10000.
