Every Tuesday 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!
Newcomers are welcome and there is always someone to explain things and help you get started.
More news, more ideas of things for you to do for your orienteering 'fix'.
"Life should not feel normal. Stay local, stay at home"
We face a very uncertain time in every aspect of life; it certainly is not life as we have known it.
Many of us will miss our weekly parkrun fix over the next few weeks, so BASOC are offering a substitute - a collection of downloadable maps showing enjoyable 5km runs in lovely forests, which require only basic navigation skills. HOWEVER, YOU MUST OBEY ALL CURRENT REGULATIONS IN PLACE AT THE TIME YOU INTEND TO RUN. Currently this includes NO UNNECESSARY TRAVEL, so you must not drive to these forests. You may go as a family group (same household) or alone.
YOU MUST CHECK THE REGULATIONS BEFORE YOU GO - THEY MAY CHANGE AND WE CAN'T GUARANTEE THAT WE'LL BE ABLE TO UPDATE THIS PAGE IMMEDIATELY.
IF YOU FEEL UNWELL, STAY SAFE INDOORS.
TUESDAY MORNING 17 MARCH: BRITISH ORIENTEERING HAVE RULED THAT "ALL ORIENTEERING ACTIVITIES IN THE UK HAVE TO BE SUSPENDED WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT".
This supersedes the changes posted on Monday night.
In BASOC we have a huge variety of orienteering experience - from those who have recently taken up the sport to those who have been doing it for a few years to those who seem to have been orienteering for ever!
