City Race – Saturday

We are excited to be staging this year’s city race in Dean Village, a historic part of town that hasn’t been used for the Big Weekend before.

Nearly 900 years old, this former village has been swallowed up by the city but still retains its historic architecture. Competitors will be treated to complex urban orienteering, with tight alleyways ready to test your skills.

Longer courses will venture further into the city centre, where route choice will play a decisive factor in the results, and there are even whispers of some multi level mayhem making an appearance.

The event centre is within touching distance of Edinburgh’s finest attractions, allowing you plenty of time to explore this fine city.

This area borders the WOC 2022 embargo, providing the perfect opportunity to get a feel for the terrain that will decide who is the best urban orienteer in 2022.
