Orienteering means maps, fun and adventure. The aim is to use your map and the skills you are taught to navigate between markers that are either set around the centre grounds or in the adjoining Marl Woods.

This can be completed as an individual or as part of a small team, where you can run, jog or walk. It’s totally up to you.

There are a number of markers of varying difficulty. We have courses to suit all ability levels from beginner to advanced, including national standard courses.

Orienteering allows you to practice map-reading skills and develop an understanding of the land that surrounds you, linking in with the P.E. National Curriculum. It is also a sport that can easily be continued in your local area through orienteering competitions and courses set up in parks and woods all over the country.
