Orienteering in Shambellie woods
Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport which involves walking or running whilst navigating around a course using a detailed map and sometimes a compass. The aim is to navigate in sequence between a set of control points and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace.
Orienteering can take place anywhere from remote forest and countryside to urban parks and school playgrounds. It’s a great sport for runners, joggers and walkers who want to improve their navigation skills or for anyone who loves the outdoors
t’s more adventurous than any computer game and more exciting than TV. Why not bring the whole family for some fun. With a map in hand you will soon be navigating your way round a course. Orienteering is a fun way to get fit. There will be courses for all levels of orienteering experience from complete beginner to the seasoned competitor. Help will be available for any one who is new to the sport.
Start times will run from 10.00 to 12.00. Cost:- adults £5.50, juniors £3. Reduced fee available for club members. Off the A710, near New Abbey, Dumfries Galloway DG2 8HQ Saturday 28th 2017. Contact telephone: 01556 610235
