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.
AYROC is in conjunction with local country parks re-establishing two Permanent Orienteering Courses at Dean Castle Country park and Eglinton Country Park
A Permanent Orienteering Course is a perfect way for getting active, enjoying the scenery and green spaces with your family, or as a chance to get outdoors for a competitive time trial.
You will be able to download the Permanent Orienteering Courses below. Your challenge is to discover checkpoints in the form of posts or plaques, in the parks . Orienteering offers a combination of physical and mental exercise which is like no other, and you can find, navigate and complete courses at any time, and at your own pace. You just need to download a map to get you started!
More information about permanent courses is available on the British Orienteering website http://www.britishorienteering.org.uk/pocs
