As a diverse group of individuals, with a broad range of experience across marketing, communications, design, web development and events, we are well positioned to help organisations looking for specialist knowledge in the outdoor and adventure sport market. While principally being involved in orienteering, our experience stretches far wider, having helped produce events for running and adventure racing, and producing websites and design work for clients in a variety of fields. Some of the things we'd be able to help with include:


including copywriting, design, strategy and implementation both on and offline


build a buzz and gain quality publicity, we'll manage the media relationships


from simple things like online entries to the full scale production and logistics

and much more...

What we do?

Events: Purple Thistle 2005-present

Our flagship event is low key, focussing on getting the essentials right, we organise a weekend of great orienteering in fantastic locations where people wouldn't otherwise get to go, and people love it, with around 300 competitors taking part in 2008 and buying into our event ethos.

Events: Rat Race Urban Adventure Series

We've been involved in the Rat Race Urban Adventure Series since the very beginning, back in Edinburgh in 2004, and have had a hand in almost every event since in one way or another. From developing quicky challenges and making map based activities to making sure there is precision in everything from event logistics to competitor instructions, we've learned a great deal from our involvement and would like to think that they have too. Stewart Caithness now works full time with Detail in producing their events and Andrew Brown is often called in to work on many aspects of the event organisation.

Marketing: Park World Tour 2010

We're involved in the organising committee taking the Park World Tour to Perth in Scotland in 2010. Principally tasked with managing the Marketing & Publicity of the event we'll be involved in all aspects of the design, branding & promotion of the event. We'll help deliver a top class event that makes an impact to both the elite orienteers competing and the general public who will have orienteering presented to them in Perth City Centre

Marketing: City of London Orienteering Race
