Pre event info

We are offering FREE COACHING sessions for anyone who's interested. It is suitable for primary school age children and those of any age wanting to improve or new to the sport. The sessions are enjoyable and based on learning key skills in short sessions. Please contact Karen Ashworth if you think you may be interested or if you are a parent of a junior with access to Spond, then register your interest on the app. Parents are welcome to attend too. Meet at 10am at the Hub Tent. You will have time to do a course after the coaching, so please pre-book your course.

The Hawth coaching session will take the form of Trail O - a special type of Orienteering where you stand at a point, look at three controls a little way away and decide which one has been marked on the map. It's a great skill to learn and will help with learning map features, visualising the terrain from the map, distance, and contours.

Park O Series Info

Park-Os are friendly club events, usually in parks or school grounds, where children and newcomers are very welcome. These are fun events where you can get a feeling for the sport – you can walk or run, go as a group or on your own or challenge your navigation at high speed against some of our top competitive orienteers. Yellow and Orange courses are suitable for children to run on their own with a bit of practice. Adults are welcome to shadow children until they are confident to go on their own. Sprint courses are run or walked by any age group.

The Park-O series takes place in the early summer and early Autumn and is 8 events this year. Medals are awarded for the best placed in a variety of age categories.
