Orienteering in Rowntree Park

21 July @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm


The Friends of Rowntrees Park and Eborienteers are running a fantastic orienteering event on Saturday 21st of July 10.30am-12.30pm

There will be a range of courses to suit all ages and abilities from beginners to the more experienced – and also a ‘string course’ for age 3-5-year-olds.

Orienteering promotes physical wellbeing and map reading ability, and most of all it is great fun! There will be people on hand to help anyone who hasn’t done orienteering before.

There will be 4 courses varying in distance from 1km to 2km. Two courses will be easy (and suitable for buggies/wheelchairs) and 2 harder. All will be entirely within the park. People can run as individuals or in groups.
Use a map to find a series of points and at each register their success using an electronic gadget. At the finish, download the gadget and print out times at each point.

Registration and get maps available from 10.00am
Course start time – 11am (finish 12.30pm)
Where – located near the Ping Pong/climbing frame/toilet area
Cost – £3 (includes maps/multiple courses)
