Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair

Next Saturday’s Moravian event at Culbin will be 50 years to the day since British Orienteering was formed. They’ll be celebrating by having an informal 1960s theme to the event.

While the orienteering will be very much 21st century, they are inviting participants to dig out their most ancient o kit, or failing that come with some kind of 1960s theme, be it your flower power Beetle or your best Jimi Hendrix lookalike gear.

Of course, fancy dress is very much optional. They would simply welcome anyone with a passion for orienteering to help celebrate – especially anyone who was around in the sport in the 1960s.

So, if you’re going to Culbin on Saturday…….

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.
