Night Orienteering

Night Orienteering

Posted: Sat 19 Sep 2015

I am aiming to complete my Level 2 Orienteering Coach qualification by offering a block of 6 progressive coached night orienteering sessions. These will run alongside normal Tue = O from 6th October to 10th November. There are only 6 spaces available. You'll just pay the usual Tue=O charge (or your Bulk Payment option).

Is it for you?

We will aim to progress from Technical Difficulty (TD) 3 up to TD4 by the end of the block. Therefore you should already be comfortable orienteering in daylight around TD3 (Orange standard). You will need to be comfortable being out in the forest for an hour in all weathers. You will also need offroad running shoes, a waterproof running jacket and (crucially) a powerful headtorch. Please don't feel you need to rush out to buy one of these as they can be expensive - I will bring along a variety to lend out to begin with. A highly tuned sense of humour is essential as night orienteering can be a bit of a "special" experience :-)

How do I sign up?

This is open to BASOC members only. Please email me directly on or call on 07896 823537. It's first come first served. Ideally you should intend to come to all six sessions (though of course it's no problem if you can't make the odd one).
