Covid-19: All face-to-face Orienteering activities suspended

As a reaction to the current Covid-19 pandemic, and in line with the SOA statement we have had to suspend all face to face orienteering activities. This includes the Thursday evening hill runs.

At the time of writing it is still possible to run on your own, so you could consider the 5 CLYDE MapRun courses listed on the SOA website.

The club may run some online workshops in the next few weeks on mapping using Open Orienteering Mapper and possibly on other orienteering analysis software.
