Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport which involves navigating around a course using a detailed map and sometimes a compass. The aim is to navigate between a set of control points and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, and you can run, walk or jog round the course and progress at your own pace.
Devon Orienteering Club seeks to encourage and promote the sport of orienteering in and around the County of Devon. Come along to an event and give it a try! All children and adults are welcome to attend Devon events and, in due course, to join the club.
Killerton’s 10 square mile estate is a mix of pasture, parkland and forestry, including several working farms. There are some steep areas and clay pits/quarries. Livestock is present in some areas so dogs must be kept on leads and may not accompany competitors on their courses. There will be visitors to the National Trust house and parklands who must be treated with courtesy at all times.
There was a good turn out for the Club Christmas walk and meal on Saturday, held once again at the White Horse Inn, near Woodbury Salterton. Thanks to everyone who came along and thanks to Beth for organising the day.
