Today is a middle distance event

For the last day of Moray 2023 we bring you a middle distance event in the delights of Culbin.  With the finish running into the arena it will provide a grand finale to Moray 2023.

For the last day of Moray 2023 we bring you a middle distance in the delights of Culbin.  With the finish running into the arena it will provide a grand finale to Moray 2023.

Culbin was planted between the wars to stabilise shifting sand dunes; the resulting open pine forest on complex topography is perfect for orienteering.  The forest is mainly runnable with good visibility though some pockets of gorse and deeper heather do exist.

ALL campervans, motorhomes and any low-slung vehicle will NOT be able to park at the arena and will be required to park nearby and walk approximately 1.5km to the arena.

Dogs are permitted in the parking and arena.
