Introduction to Orienteering



Posted: Wed 1 May 2019

Yet again we had wonderful weather for the 4th in our introduction to orienteering session in Towneley Park, Burnley.

This was the last week of the series, but we will endeavour to do something similar later in the year.

Results are available here.

27 participants enjoyed yet another sunny morning challenge orienteering their way around a choice of Orange or Score courses in Towneley Park.

Once again it was re-assuring that the same, now familiar, faces turned up for yet another session..

This week we simulated an event, using SI timing, dibbers etc. The 45 minute time limit for the Score event added an extra dimension which seems to have been enthusiastically received by those taking part.

Those who took part ranged in experience to complete novices, experienced fell runners through to lapsed orienteers. Everyone enjoyed the challenge and most participants hope to attend other Orienteering events over the coming months.

The excellent weather throughout this series has obviously helped, and made the event quite a social affair with plenty of time to sit about, chat and enjoy tea or coffee from the Stables café.
