New to orienteering? It's a trail run (and often an off-trail run!) with a difference - an orienteering race doesn't follow a set route. Instead you have to visit a series of checkpoints and register each one with an electronic timing chip. The checkpoints are marked by flags on the ground and may be along paths, earth banks, streams or anywhere around the area. The challenge is to race between each one, choosing your own route between the checkpoints, using a special orienteering map (which you get to keep too). Why not come and give it a go?

What do I need? It's an outdoor sport, dress for the weather conditions. You may encounter mud and bushy vegetation so please don't bring your designer clothes... We'll give you a map, compass and an electronic card for recording your time.
