Pre Event Info

Please arrive as promptly as possible if you intend going up onto 'Creag Beag'.
Everything should be ready from 6:15pm; the longest suggested course is about 3.8km with 200m climb.
Spring into O
This session will work on:
- cutting corners through the forest
- finding features just away from paths
Train to Race
The rougher moorland will be used for some of the training - to get you prepared for the ground at Balmoral! The new 'Creag Beag' map will be used to take you high up the hill.
You will also have to work on changing tactics and pace between
- the open moorland and the forest areas
- slogging uphill before heading rapidly downhill.
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.
Meet at 6:30 prompt. Please come appropriately dressed for the weather on the night, the sort of thing you would wear if you were going for a trail run.
You need to be back by 7:30pm.
£2 Adults, £1 Juniors for BASOC or other orienteering club members.
£3 Adults, £1.50 Juniors for non members.
