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.
Congratulations to the Devon successes at the SW Middle Distance Championships on Studland Dunes.
A good number from Devon were attracted to a weekend's competition in a beautiful corner of South Dorset, some returning to the dunes, first used last year, and some who had heard how good the area was.
