Course Information

Who is it aimed at ? Nearly everybody is the answer. If you are quite new to Orienteering and need coaching we will have a group going through the basics. If more experienced and just need the practice we will have some exercises to get you thinking and no doubt there will be a group in the middle as well getting guidance.

From about age 10 most children can take part but we strongly encourage parents to have a go as well…… especially where the children are at the youngest end.

Miscellaneous

What do you need to bring ? Yourself in sensible clothing , trainers ( or Trail shoes if you have them) plus a drinks bottle and a light snack which goes down well. If you have a compass and whistle bring them with you but we will have spares. If its going to rain a lightweight waterproof make sense. We will generally carry on whatever the weather unless it is really poor.
