Welcome to the official website for the Fight with the Night series organised by Edinburgh University Orienteering Club!
"Fight with the Night" is a series of fun informal night orienteering events all based in the Edinburgh area. Boasting a wide variety of terrain all within 25 mins travel of Edinburgh city centre you'll be hard pressed to find a better Night league.
Entry to all events in 2015/6 is £2 with starts between 19:00 and 19:45. See below for further details about what's going on.
Location: The event will be mainly on the 1:5000 Whinny Hill section of Arthur's Seat, with the start and finish area at the North end of St. Margaret's Loch. Grid reference NT276739, postcode ~EH8 8JB. See Google maps for the exact location.
Parking should be available in the car park, or in the streets nearby if it's full. It's very easy to jog to from the Central Area too.
Date/Time: Thursday 26 November 2015. Starts from 19:00-19:45, courses close at 20:30.
Entries: £2 per map. Enter on the night. Remember to bring your dibbers (and remember to download!). If you don't have one, there will be spares available at the start.
Courses: There will be a long course (~5km) and a short course (~3km) available. You must report to the finish before courses close, even if you don't finish your course.
Arthur's Seat is a proper area, so make sure you wear shoes with suitable grip for off-road. As always, please be courteous to any members of the public you come across and don't fall off any cliffs. If the weather's bad, make sure you're suitably dressed and equipped for it, it can be exposed up ontop!
