Look out for an email or a post for each event with details and how to pre-enter. No entry on the night.

Sundays
9th Oct  Glen Dye
At least 4 courses – more details to follow very soon.

If you can’t make any of these events or prefer to avoid others fo 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 – see the TOC post for info.
