Deeside Night Cup 18/19

A wee heads up to test your torches and dust off your night O tactics over the next few weeks as battle recommences on Halloween – come out if you dare!

Every Wed evening from 31/10 to mid-Feb in a wide variety of areas up and down Deeside and a bit beyond (Forvie’s back in the mix this year – yippee!) with two courses of 5km and 3km both TD5 or Green standard.

If you’re a newcomer to night O or only just working up to that standard but fancy having a bash then give us a shout (flump@care4free.net) and we’ll try to find a TD5 standard runner to shadow you for your first couple of goes. Gramp also has a couple of headtorches for hire if you want to try before you buy your own.

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?

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.
