Orienteering Events

Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Training events are non competitive and used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships.

Virtual Orienteering Courses

The MapRun orienteering app allows you to take part in “Virtual” orienteering courses using the GPS in your smartphone (or watch) at a time convenient for yourself. You run a course using either the map on your phone screen or a paper version, and your phone will beep when you reach the correct location of each control.

Permanent Orienteering Courses

If you’d like to try orienteering while socially distancing, then a permanent course might be just right for you. It enables you to follow a map and find the controls in your own time.

Your challenge is to discover checkpoints in the form of posts or plaques, in forests, heathlands, parks and green spaces across the UK.
