British Orienteering Ranking:
Come along to our next event in the wonderful Forest of Dean, with courses available for all abilities and ages.
If you are new to orienteering there will be help and advice available so you select the course that best suits your ability.
All courses are line courses ranging from about 2km (White Course), with controls located on paths, making navigation easy - so suitable for families with young children - right through to around 8km with technical difficulty to match (Brown Course).
The advertised course lengths will be straight line distance and the aim is to find the best route between check points, which in most cases will not be straight - so expect to run further.
Entry Fees are White and Yellow courses: £3.00; Orange & above: Juniors and students £5.00; Seniors £10.00.
You will be timed using an eletronic chip device (dibber), which can be hired if you do not have your own - Juniors free Seniors £1.50
