Moray Walking and Outdoor Festival require that a risk assessment has been prepared for each event and that they are read, understood and implemented by all event leaders as necessary and appropriate.
Event leaders must provide an activity and site-specific risk assessment. This should consider chosen location, weather, ability and behaviour of the group, logistics and any other factors that may influence participant safety. It should be understood that the submission of this form to the Moray Walking and Outdoor Festival organisers is for information only.

A risk assessment form will be provided following receipt of this event submission form. Support will be available to provide advice in completing the risk assessment if required.
We do not know what Scottish Government COVID-19 restrictions will be in place in June 2023. Event Providers will be responsible for ensuring that their event will adhere to any guidelines in force at the time of the event. This will include completing a risk assessment with COVID-19 precautions. ( If necessary, including within the plan, PPE in first aid kits, reducing participant numbers on events and ensuring that participants adhere to any social distancing guidelines.) It is also suggested that Event Providers complete Sport Scotland’s free COVID Officer E-Learning Module. Unfortunately, new guidelines may alter events or force us to postpone the Festival. We will update this statement as more information is gathered.
We will not sell any tickets until we are confident that we can proceed with the Festival.
