Ready to compete?

Fair play:

  • To make it a fair competition, you must only do the stage once – your first go is the one that counts!
  • You must not use the ‘Image’, ‘Ghost’ or ‘Arrange’ buttons – these would make it too easy!

There’ll be 60 jigsaw pieces in total. You have to arrange the pieces to create an orienteering map. You do not need to rotate any pieces.

The map is of the Wiorld Champs Relay from 1999 – Loch Vaa – one of the UK’s best areas.

When you’re ready to play:

  1. Go to this link.
  2. Arrange the jigsaw pieces to complete the map.
  3. Take a screenshot or photo as proof of your time – we may ask to see it.
  4. Submit your time via our results website.

You MUST complete this stage by 16:00 UK Time on Sunday 15th November.
