Thank you to everyone for coming to the JHI Relays today.  We hope you enjoyed our Scottish terrain and our hospitality.  Highland Perthshire did us proud with the autumnal display of colour.  Even the dreaded bracken looked beautiful with colours ranging from yellow through to dark orange.  A bit of blue sky and sunshine would have enhanced the colours but in the end the weather was quite kind with the rain keeping off until after the prizegiving.  

Safe journey home and Haste ye Back to Scotland

Explanation of colour courses

  • White are very easy with all controls on paths. They are mainly used by 6-10 year olds and family groups.
  • Yellow use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams. They are mainly used by under 12’s and family groups.
  • Orange progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.
  • Light Green are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and point features.
  • Green are used mostly by experienced under 18’s and adults wanting a short but challenging course with a very hard navigational difficulty.
  • Blue are a longer, more physically demanding course in comparison to the green. The distances are more varied between controls and the course attracts experienced orienteers.
  • Brown & Black are very physically demanding and have a very hard navigational difficulty. They are for experienced orienteers only.
  • Score means visiting as many controls as possible in any order in a specific time, like 45mins.
