EckO and the Itera Adventure Race - volunteers needed

Posted: Thu 11 Aug 2022

Adventure Oban are partnering with Loch Eck Orienteers and Oban Canoe Club to bring the ITERA Expedition Race to Oban. This is a mind-boggling challenge that sees over 50 teams of 4 from all over the world take part in 500km of non-stop racing on foot, bike and kayak across the West Highlands. In particular, Oban Adventure is helping out ECKO as we look after an orienteering stage near Inverawe from Thursday 18th August at 2am until Friday 19th August at 3am.

We need all the volunteers we can get to help staff the start and finish section of the stage. You don’t need any orienteering experience and we’re grateful for any time you can offer, even if it’s just an hour.

If you can help, send an email to and Adventure Oban will take it from there.
