Virtual Orienteering Courses

It may be called “virtual”, but there’s nothing virtual about the terrain, the exercise and the navigation … using your smartphone (or alternatively your Garmin smart watch), MapRun offers a new dimension of socially distanced orienteering while still giving a challenge. All you need to do is to load the free app, choose a course, get there and start!

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.

For those new to orienteering there is a new Orienteering Foundation video Permanent Orienteering Courses – Discover an Outdoor Adventure to give you an idea of what to expect.

Club Training - Puttenham Common

The GO/MV joint training sessions resumed after the Summer at Puttenham Common on Saturday 1st October.

On a bright day we concentrated on using the compass to follow a bearing. There were a range of activities from a short simple course for newcomers up to more challenging courses for those trying to improve their skills.

After a break for refreshments and hot chocolate there was a fun activity allowing everyone to visit controls and use a dibber.

The next session is planned for Saturday 19th November at Abinger Roughs between Guildford and Dorking
