MapRun: South Hessary, Dartmoor

From Sunday 1st November 2020

Our next maprun is aimed at experienced Orienteers in part of the Moor we rarely get to. It is not suitable for novices due to the exposed nature of the area.  This is real Orienteering….but without a flag to help. The Maprun will be available from Sunday 1st November to Saturday 14th November.
