Run Wild Woods Tue=O

Tuesday training - everyone is welcome at our low-key local orienteering every week.

August is a month of 2 halves - starting with sessions on 2nd and 9th based at Nethybridge Primary School. For folk who came along to the taster sessions, this is a great opportunity to develop your skills with Attack Points on 2nd and getting your direction right when cutting corners on 9th. There will also be good exercises for more experienced folk, everyone is welcome.

For 16th and 23rd we will be in Inshriach - meet in the car park near Feshiebridge - turn off the B970 on the road that's signposted to the gliding club, then almost immediately turn left into the forest car park. Arrangements for 30th are to be confirmed. For all these evenings there will be activities suitable for people who have attended the Nethybridge development sessions, and for seasoned orienteers.

Map And Compass

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.
