Lockdown Orienteering

Allan Bogle’s latest map

Allan Bogle has been busy in lock down and has produced a new street map of Eglinton along with a DIY orienteering activity which uses questions instead of normal control points:

If you want to give it a go (don’t travel far and remember to social distance) here are the links to the map and question:

COVID19 Update – All Orienteering Activities Suspended

See below for statement from our governing body – British Orienteering

It is with great sadness that we are now in a position where all orienteering activities in the UK have to be suspended with immediate effect.

We are aware that the Coranvirus outbreak is a very fluid and rapidly changing situation. We all, therefore, continue to follow advice from the Public Health England, the World Health Organisation and both local and national governments on this matter and will keep the orienteering community updated as appropriate.

We know how great the sport is at supporting each other and we ask that you continue to pull together (albeit virtually) during this difficult time.  We will do our best to get you back into the forests as soon as it is safe to do so.

Finally, we ask that you continue to follow the government’s guidance on how to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.  Please stay safe and support each other during this hard time.
