Our Next Events:
5th October 2019
Day 1 of our October orienteering weekend, "Autumn in Anglia" is set in the forest at West Harling. The area contains mixed woodland and, although contours are not a feature, there are various tracks, paths, chalk pits, tumuli & distinctive trees to aid navigation. There will be a range of courses to suit everyone, from experienced orienteers to complete newcomers & from juniors to those of more advanced years. The event is included in the EA league for members of local orienteering clubs but beginners are welcome - we'll explain the basics & help you to get started.

6th October 2019
The second event in our Autumn weekend is an urban race in the lovely market town of Bury St Edmunds. There will be courses to suit all levels - the event is included in 3 different urban leagues for experienced orienteers, so there are courses to match the age categories, while newcomers may try a "Taster" course if they prefer. Our volunteers will be on hand to brief first-timers & help with course selection.
The event centre will be based in the Bury Town Football Club & the courses will start from the Abbey Gardens. Juniors will find their checkpoints located within, or close by, the Gardens, while adults will be planning routes out into the streets & alleys of the town. From the ruins of the Abbey to The Arc to the residential areas - there'll be plenty of contrast as you navigate around your chosen course!
