Orienteering Foundation Training Day

IMG 20191123 WA0000

12 PFO members took part in todays training day at Haverthwaite.

Everyone enjoyed the exercises and a chance to orienteer in the forest, although for some it may have been a bit too strenuous!

The Orienteering Foundation will be holding another Lakes Coaching Day at Haverthwaite Heights on Saturday 23 November 2019.

A handful of PFO members participated in the last session and found it very beneficial with a great opportunity to train in Lakeland terrain.

Further details of this event are here.

We have arranged to go as a group which will enable us to tailor the training to the needs of those attending.

What is Orienteering ?

Baseplate Compass

Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport that exercises both the mind and the body. The aim is to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a unique orienteering map 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.
