Wed 05 July, 2023
Level of event:
Type of event:
Race, Coaching, Training
SN is offering local running clubs 3 (or anyone else who is interested) opportunities to try Orienteering for free. The sessions will run on:
7th June, 21st June, 5th July
Starts from 6.30-7.00pm from the Wellington Memorial car park,
Sessions will start with a basic orienteering course in order to introduce track or road runners to the O map and the idea of orienteering. There will be progressively more difficult courses on offer, using the same area and often the same controls, so that there is an element of familiarity whilst also gently progressing runners onto the terrain . Club members are requested to come along to help by introducing the aim, the map, and then by running alongside the track runner around the courses to be there to help if required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help , and please let anyone who might be interested know about these events.
Pre Event Info
A training course is also provided for regular club members who would like to get a chance to do some technical training
