Run wild in the woods
Tuesday=O, we go out orienteering, usually with a navigational focus. Call it training or just playing, it’s as hard as you want it to be, both physically and technically!
So dig out that compass and give it a go.
Newcomers are welcome and there is always someone to explain things and help you get started.
It’s back…Schools League 2017!
After the success of last year’s inaugural schools league, we’re back again! This year there will be a warm-up event in Kingussie, before the 3 series races.
The perfect way to start orienteering. Come along to our family introduction to orienteering sessions and be coached by Mehmet Karatay, one of our club coaches, in the essentials of orienteering. The sessions run alongside our usual Tuesday training, so you'll get to meet the rest of us too!
