New to Orienteering?

Beginner family

Orienteering is an exciting adventure sport suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It combines map reading and running. Competitors have to find their way between a series of checkpoints, called controls, as quickly as possible. There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.

Anytime Orienteering

Map Run phone app

We offer opportunities to go orienteering at anytime that it is convenient to you.
Permanent courses that have marker posts*, Virtual courses have nothing visible but your phone beeps when you are in the right spot using the Maprun app, and postbox orienteering courses.

* Under review see Home Page information.
