Pre Event Info

Participants will be able to try out one of two course options of 2.5km or 4km that will take them on a tour of some stunning woodland and river bank scenery, using a specially prepared orienteering map. Participants should allow around 1 hour to complete the orienteering course and can register at any time between 10:30 and 14:00.
