November's event takes place on EckO's brand new mapped area - Glen Nant - which drew lots of positive comments after the Scottish Orienteering League event here in May. Sunday's event has been planned by Ecko Junior, Louis MacMillan who will be presented on the day with his Argyll and Bute Sports Achievement of the Year award by Councillor Roddy McCuish.

The terrain for all courses, bar the Yellow, is open and exposed. In the event of poor weather, cagoules and whistles will be compulsory. Come prepared.
