Devon Orienteering


Maprun: Shiphay, Torquay

From Sunday 18th October 2020

We are opening up the next in our maprun series, the Torquay Shiphay maprun on Sunday 18th October with it staying open until the 1st November 2020. There is a long or short version. Hopefully many of you will give it a go. Feel free to post how you did on the Devon OC facebook page.  Details below. 


Maprun: Golden Dagger, Dartmoor

From Sunday 4th October 2020

Our next maprun is aimed at experienced Orienteers in one of the best areas on the Moor. It is not suitable for novices due to the very technical nature of the area. If you don’t believe me download the map and see for yourself !  This is real Orienteering….but without a flag to help.

The Maprun will be available from Sunday 4th October to Saturday 17th October.

For more details see below.

New Series of Mapruns!

Exeter Heavitree is the first.....

The next series of map runs start from Sunday 20th September.  In each case the map run will be open for two weeks before being archived to a different Maprun folder. The thinking behind this is to encourage people to get involved on a regular basis but keeping the asset available afterwards if anyone wants to use it.

We are opening up the Exeter Heavitree map run on Sunday 20th September with it staying open until the 3rd October 2020 and hopefully many of you will give it a go. Feel free to post how you did on the Devon OC Facebook page. 

See below for further information.
