Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport that exercises both the mind and the body. The aim is to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a unique orienteering map and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace.
The East of Scotland Individual Championships will be hosted by EUOC at Riccarton on Sunday 19th November 2017. More details, including which course you need to run to be eligible for an ESOA Trophy, can be found on the EUOC website.Updated on 19/10/17.
We are at the end of the spring-summer Sprintelope series with events put on by ELO, ESOC, INT and RR. The results have been changed into points tables and as the final event was worth double points many places changed. After the event there was a prizegiving at which certificates and Sprintelope branded prizes were awarded. The evening finished with thanks to Graeme Ackland for coordinating the whole series.Updated on 26/7/17.
