Pre Event Info

In line with previous training sessions there will be a number of drills on offer. Unless I get specific requests for particular activities, we will look at:

  • Simplification
  • Contours
  • 'Fine' Orienteering skills

In addition to this, there will be more basic skills training for any novices attending. Probably:

  • Aiming off
  • Traffic Lights
  • Map Memory

The area of woods we are using is generally very runnable with some mature beech stands, as well as quite a bit of contour 'interest'. There will be a short 10 min walk from the car park to the training hub. 

Please bring spare warm clothes, and waterproofs (if wet), as well as snacks and fluids.
