Orienteering is an exciting outdoor sport. It’s a race with set points but no set route between them. Walk. jog or run it’s up to you. The fastest round in the correct order wins.

Long 4km and Short 2km (distances are for guidance purposes and may vary slightly from week to week.). Each week the courses will start from the same location and there will be two new courses to try.

No previous experience needed. There will be friendly club coaches on hand to help anyone new to the sport get started.

Start times will run from 6pm to 7pm. You can start at any time within that hour but we suggest that if you are new to the sport that you arrive at 6pm so that we can help you get started.

Cost. It is only £5 for adults and £3 for juniors. Students in full time further education go FREE. Please note that all courses will cross roads. While traffic within the Crichton grounds is light juniors under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Adults accompanying a junior go free.

This event will be run using the Maprun app and you will need to have a smart phone with the app downloaded. You can find out more about Maprun on this link Click on this link to read more about Maprun.
