Use Orienteering to discover your Natural Heritage

We are looking for all our regulars to join many people new to the sport on Sunday 31st August at the end of National Heritage Week. We have even organised a sunny day at Kennedy Arboretum.
Starts between 11 and 2. Full explanation of Trail O is posted below.
For regular orienteers, there will also be a Sprint Orienteering event.There will be a mass start for this at 2 p.m. The only stipulation is that you must have first completed the Trail O course. Participants will have a maximum of one hour to get all the controls. Each control will be worth points and time penalties will incur for this event for those who take longer.
Note the full Autumn fixture list is posted on the right side of the Blog.
