Dibbers courtesy of Mactaggart and Mickel

AYROC has recently taken possession of a set of 18 dibbers, electronic timing devices, which were very generously funded by the  Building Communities fund of Mactaggart and Mickel. This will allow us to offer orienteering to more people, particularly during the Covid times when our equipment needs to be disinfected or quarantined between each use. Our annual AYROC School Championships will also benefit as we frequently have to borrow dibbers from other clubs.
Thanks to Mactaggart and Mickel for this donation.

Beginner

New to Orienteering?

Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport that exercises both the mind and the body.  It’s an adventure sport for all!  The aim of orienteering is to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a unique orienteering map and to decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time.  It doesn’t matter how young, old, fit or unfit you are as you can run, walk, jog and progress at your own pace.
