What is Orienteering

Facebook


Pre season training at Martinshaw Woods

Download the Martinshaw MaprunF Score Course from BOF POC list to gain experience in racing with Virtual orienteering and the equipment you need. Your phone linked to gps watch can be the easiest, but its up to you to try it out. Details are in the Friday 10th  Mailchimp sent to members.

This course will remain open after the Leicester Lockdown ends, so that everyone can practice.

MaprunF Willesley Woodlands Market Bosworth and extra course at Irchester

The Woodland Trust have given permission to put in MaprunF courses at Willesley.  All controls are virtual controls, ie there are no markers!  Beware, control 12 on the Green download is one from an older version. The County Council have allowed us to add a Maprun Yellow course to the POC courses at Market Bosworth. There will be shortly be a third course: Score style at Irchester Country Park. 

Postponement of Up and Out Programme

As the government has reintroduced restrictions on travel and activities in Leicester and surrounding areas, we are postponing the Up and Out programme until further notice.
