Don’t panic! Help is at hand...

Practise proper orienteering in Hemsted Forest

We have created two training routes in Hemsted Forest nr Cranbrook: a short 4km circuit and a longer 6.5km one. The routes utilise MapRun to make the start, finish and an intermediate control or two. The remaining check points are marked with orange safety tape at the control location and offer an ideal opportunity to practise proper orienteering. 


Some examples of things you might like to try are:

process flow
map memory
simplification
aiming off
pacing and distance estimation
simulation of race day

 

Maps and full details are in the MapRun Section, along with a 'How To’ document. 

 

Dont forget to adhere to current Covid19 Safety advice, maintain distancing and undertake the training as an individual or family group.
