Anytime Orienteering courses are ones where you can take part at anytime when it is convenient for yourself.
Some make use of the MapRunF App which can be downloaded for either Android and iOS and there are no physical controls on the ground., others are Permanent Orienteering courses in local parks which make use of fixed posts with orienteering markers attached whilst some others are just based upon a paper map.
Our very own Kay Hawke was one of seven featured nationally in British Orienteering's VOLUNTEER WEEK webpage . She didn't win the overall accolade, but I think you'll agree she does a pretty good job of organising, creating, communicating, cajoling and, above all, making orienteering good fun.
MapRun6 has now been released and is available to download from the App Store or the Play Store.
- It is a separate App, so it can co-exist on your phone with MapRunF as users start to adopt it. Eventually MapRunF will be removed.
A new MapRun course centred around Crawshawbooth is now available.
Manchester & District Orienteering Club (MDOC) have just released a series of four training videos.
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.
