Duthie Park POC

The Duthie Park permanent orienteering course has had a face lift, courtesy of two energetic young lads. Andrew and Matthew live close to the park and were looking for a lockdown exercise challenge. QR codes, a map and a marker pen later and they have ensured all the controls are legible once again.

If you know of anyone who may be interested in trying this course they can download a map from the Aberdeen City council website. Alternatively the map complete with course overlay and a compass can be accessed using a smart phone via the MOBO app.

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.
