Each week over the summer holidays we will be launching a new MapRun virtual orienteering course which you can go and run either on your own (at any time) or with a group. For those that like the idea of some company there will be a meeting point arranged every Monday evening where you can get together to make it a bit more social. The idea of the MMM is to get out there and have some fun whilst hopefully doing some useful (physical and technical) training at the same time. The areas will be primarily urban and / or open and the courses will be set at a maximum technical level of TD3 (orange equivalent).
Please note that the permanent course at Dess is currently closed due to ongoing forestry work. We hope to re-plan and re-launch the course once work is completed, likely in autumn 2018.
Final points table for the Forest Sprint series is here. Well done to all who took part and especially to Matthew Gooch for taking the top spot.
The new permanent orienteering course at Linn of Dee was recently opened as part of the Cairngorms Nature BIG weekend. The course has been installed through collaboration with National Trust for Scotland at Mar Lodge estate as part of the Community Orienteering and Protection of the Environment project, funded by Cairngorm LEADER.
The After-School Orienteering club in Aboyne will re-start on Thu 19th April with a block of 4 weeks up to 10th May and then a further block of 4 weeks runing from 31st May to 22nd June. The club is suitable for anyone from complete beginner up to "orange" standard and meets at Aboyne Community Centre. We use small nearby areas of woodland in the village to practice basic orienteering skills incuding map setting, symbols and compass work.
Further information and application form for the Aboyne club is available here
Looking for something to do in the holidays?
There are now two Maprun virtual orienteering courses set up in Aboyne: an urban style course of ~8km all round the village and sprint style course round the grounds of the school and neighbouring woodland.
The courses are set up so that you can run them whenever you like. Read on to find out how...
