Information for participants
What you need to know before you apply. Please read these carefully before you commit to entering the Event even if you have participated before.
Event and Final Details:
Whilst these documents can be viewed in a browser To get the best out of them and make printing easier we advise using Adobe Acrobat Reader which can be downloaded for free here.
2022 Event Details are essential reading for any Challenger participating in TGOC22 but also give an idea of what is involved to any one considering entering in the future. They give guidance on route planning, presentation and submission.
The 2022 Final Details will be published by early April and will appear here. Meanwhile the 2021 Final Details give an idea of the information available as the Event draws near.
If at all possible please use the online entry form – you will have been emailed a link if you are entitled to an automatic place and this will be publicly available on the home page once we are open to other entries.
If any member of you group cannot complete this, paper copies can be downloaded and posted (or scanned and emailed) to the Coordinators. Please note these forms are only suitable to be filled out by hand and do not work well if you try to type them.
Please present your route on one of the forms below making sure you have selected the correct form for your start date. We cannot accept it in any other format. Mac users – please use the note we cannot open “Pages” documents.
Before you submit it, however many Challenges you have completed, please ensure it complies with the Route Sheet Checklist
Editable PDFs will be available if you are unable to open the Word documents easily, in particular Mac users and those who use Open Office.
Please ensure your route sheet does not roll over onto a fourth page and do not remove any boxes. For those with routes deferred from 2020/21 this is your best option as it will allow you to “cut’n’paste” unaltered sections. Please highlight any changes and do not simply adjust the dates on your 2020/21 route sheet as we need all route sheets in the same format.
Guide to Scotland’s Terrain:
Colin Crawford’s excellent guide to Scotland’s terrain – well worth a read if you are new to Scotland or have only walked a waymarked trail here.
Medical Information and Emergency Contact Form:
These will be available in March and need to be submitted by mid April.
