Duthie Park Permanent Course back up and in business

Following the restoration project at Duthie Park, Aberdeen City Council and Gramp have pooled resources to reinstate the Permanent Orienteering Course there with two versions of the map and a Mobo orienteering course too for those with smartphones and a sense of technological adventure.

Read the ACC press release here and take a look at their leaflets for the Short 1km and Medium 1.9km courses featuring a special map, based on the architect plans for the restoration, and controls on most of the historical features and monuments dotted about the park.

If you want to time yourself and compare your performance against others using your smartphone, the Medium course is available on the MOBO app – http://mobo.osport.ee/
Maroc have got 3 Mobo courses at Dess, Bell Wood and Creag Choinnich.

This is what we’re currently planning…. (fingers crossed everybody please!) Things are going to look  a little different now due to Covid-19 precautions, most important being pre-entry only and allocated start times even for local events.

See our Covid 19 page for more info.

Wednesdays
Deeside Night Cup starts 28th Oct through to 24th Feb – full list of venues etc to follow soon

Sundays
9th Oct  Glen Dye

If you can’t make any of these events or prefer to avoid others for the time being, you can join the Mobile O revolution  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.
Or do one of our Temporary Orienteering Courses if we’ve got one out at the moment – see the TOC post for info.

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