Street Orienteering

From our course-setter Andy Skelhorn - This year’s street orienteering from the Vale Inn in Bollington on Wed the 21st December will be an open course, where you have 80 minutes to get as many checkpoints / clues as possible. 

 

It starts at 7pm with registration in the pub from 6.40.

 

 

Solo or team entries accepted. All welcome - if you're new to orienteering and want a partner just come along anyway and we'll sort you out. 

 

All you need is to be able to run a little bit (a little bit will be enough to keep up with the fell runners), and a vague sense of direction (similarly, a vague sense will be more then most of the fell runners have)  And points mean prizes.

The course does not need any local knowledge, and is mostly on the road, but also be prepared for bits of Middlewood Way / Canal / unmetalled tracks.  A map is provided, but bring a torch and a pencil  (and a poly bag if it is raining).
