Orienteering is a fantastic outdoor activity that combines running/walking with navigation (traditionally using a map and compass). Participants use their speed and coordination to locate a number of flags located around a course in the shortest time possible. Participants can time their run or compete against each other as part of a competitive event.
All new Orienteering locations include the latest MapRun virtual courses making the activity accessible to anyone at anytime. Each location includes a Short, Medium and Long map with some including a Score Map. Participants are invited to download MapRun app on to their smartphone and follow the guided instructions.
Many mapped locations are inclusive with courses suitable for buggies and wheelchairs.
Traditional and MapRun virtual courses are now available in all of the following locations:
MapRun Orienteering is available to individuals, families and also larger groups from Schools, Community and Youth Groups and Age Active and Disability Groups. Each course is designed to include all levels of fitness and ability. For more details contact Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org
