World Orienteering Day 11th May

WOD logoDid you know that May 11th was World Orienteering Day?

I’d forgotten until Sarah Dunn reminded me yesterday so I’ve retrospectively registered Balmedie on the WOD website and our 39 participants are now part of the bid to create a record for the most folk O-ing on a single day. Not sure when they stop counting but 172,081 so far when I last looked and still counting.

WOD website – scroll down for one of those interactive, blobby maps showing who’s registered and where and you can then zoom right down to Scotland and eventually Balmedie. Did you know there’s a club in Nuuk in Greenland? They had 8 participants. Research station I wonder? Fascinating stuff.

If you were at Balmedie then you might like to award yourself this WOD diploma to stick on the fridge?

UPCOMING EVENTS (click series or event names for details link)

We’re slowly starting up again but at the moment it’s club members only (to aid contact tracing should the need arise and keep numbers attending events to a minimum.) We’ll send emails to members for individual events as they come up as arrangements may change. See our Covid 19 page for more info.

You can join the Mobile O revolution though and download the MapRun app and have a go at some local courses using your phone to time yourself and even navigate with. Visit our MapRun page for instructions and a list of maps.

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT EVENT? NEED A FIX NOW?

Then try a Permanent Orienteering Course in a local forest or park or try one of our Street O maps for a taste of urban O.
