We will be organising a further block of coached orienteering sessions after the summer holidays, aimed at family participation. The sessions will be suitable for families with at least one child age 8 or older. It will be possible to sign up and Pay As You Go for individual sessions, or alternatively sign up for the full block of 4 sessions and receive FREE Club Membership for all the family until Dec 2020.
The "MapRun" app allows you to set up and take part in "Virtual" orienteering courses using your smartphone. You run a course using either the map on your phone screen or a paper version, and your phone will automatically beep when you reach the correct location of each control (nothing marking it on the ground). At the end of the course your results and split times can be saved into a results table alongside others who have run the course.
There are now 15 MapRun courses available (25 Sep 2018) in the Deeside area which you can use as you wish for family recreation or personal training.
Reminder that the closing date for online entries for the Individual Championships is midnight this Sunday, 12th May. The event is being hosted by Solway Orienteers and will take place on 25th May at Dalbeattie Town Wood with a revised and extended map.
The Closing date for Relays is 16th May - please let Sarah Dunn know if you want to run in a relay team. The relays will take place at Drumlanrig on Sunday 26th May.
More information on their website here for both the individual and relay events.
