Maprun: Woodbury Common

From Sunday 29th November 2020

Our next maprun has been planned by Chris Perry and is aimed at orienteers in the eastern part of the county - but with lockdown coming to an end we should hopefully see a lot of visitors in subsequent weeks from across the county and further afield. 'Hope you enjoy it!

New Exeter Maprun!

Polsloe and Mincinglake -from 15th November

The next Maprun, opening on Sunday 15th November 2020, is a 60 minute score course in Exeter. The course is a mixture of residential streets, open parkland and a couple of hills thrown in for good measure!  For details see below...

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.

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.

Maprun: Bishopsteignton

This is a 10 Control Line Course.

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. 

  

Events, Activities and Mapruns

Update 7.9.2020

A quick update on where we are in these strange times.

Although we would like to be able to organise some “proper “ events we are in a position where two main landowners, Forestry England and Dartmoor National Park are not currently giving permissions for events. With the National Trust also having limitations on numbers it really is making life difficult for orienteers at the moment.

As a result we have been having a rethink over our Map Runs as it is quite possible that these might have to be the mainstay of the club for a period of time.
