Club News:

The Current Situation

From 5th January all organised orienteering events, leagues, coaching etc have been suspended - you can read the full statement from British Orienteering here.

Individuals are encouraged to continue to exercise locally & you probably have your own preferred routes close to home. If you happen to live near one of our Virtual Courses you may like to try it to practise your "O" skills - there's no limit to the number of times you can repeat any of the courses so trying to improve your route choices, along with your fitness level, could take you higher up the MapRun leaderboard!

Xmas 2020

We're still hoping to bring you the events we've scheduled for 2021, but, in the meantime, along with many other clubs, we've been continuing to develop our catalogue of virtual MapRun courses. The courses are similar to those we put on in our Summer Series - the latest offerings are a score course in Aldeburgh, thanks to Ray, & a long & short linear course in Elmswell, generated by Sarah's Purple Pen. At the suggestion of one of our regular MapRunners we're also beginning to put together some 5Km Run Routes, e.g. this one in Elmswell. As they're fairly simple routes they'll be a good introduction to MapRun, in addition providing a timed route for those missing their regular parkrun!

So - have a go, have fun, & encourage your friends to try our virtual courses to liven up Xmas & the New Year..

Our Next Events:

 Nowton & Hardwick

?? 2021

We originally pencilled in this event for February 7th, but, due to the current lockdown, it will unfortunately have to be postponed. The event will include both our Nowton Park & the Hardwick Heath maps as the areas are fairly close, linked by footpaths & established residential estates. The course planning is well underway & we're hoping to reschedule it later in the summer. We'll post further details once they've been firmed up - but you can be confident that we'll be following all the British Orienteering C-19 guidelines.

Simon Peck Summer Series 2021

We're hoping to hold 3 events as usual in this series, starting from 9th May. The proposed venues are Clare Country Park, Orwell Country Park & the Royal Hospital School. There'll be further details in the New Year, once we've established the necessary permissions & the planning has advanced.
