Run, jog or walk - it's up to you! This event is an exciting introduction to orienteering, organised by Thames Valley Orienteering Club, and is ideal for all ages & abilities. There will be several courses suitable for newcomers, runners and families too. You’ll receive a special orienteering map showing your chosen course which will consist of a series of checkpoints. At each point in the woods, you’ll find a marker flag and electronic unit to record your progress. The challenge is to visit the checkpoints on your course in order, as quickly as you can, using your map to choose your route between each one. When you return to the finish, your timing chip will be downloaded and you’ll receive a print out of your times. Just wear whatever you would for a run or walk and don't forget your sense of adventure! This event takes place at Wittenham Clumps, Little Wittenham Road, Little Wittenham, Oxfordshire, OX14 4QZ (parking in Earth Trust car park). Come along any time between 10am & 11.30am and give it a go. Help is available for newcomers. Cost - £5 adults/£2 under 21s, students and family groups.
