Local level event

What does this mean?

Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Training events are non competitive and used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships.

Technical score (45 minutes)- maybe with a twist!

Whether you tried orienteering for the first time recently or are an old hand this event is an ideal next step in your orienteering journey. Try out your skills new or old in a beautiful area of South Lakeland woodland situated a short drive north of the A590. Lots of paths and tracks for those still finding their way and lots of brown wiggles for those wanting more challenge.

Unsure which course to enter? The white course is great for younger children, the yellow for older beginner children and the orange will tempt you off the beaten track slightly, so best for those with some experience of yellow courses already.
