Connel Bridge in the mist

Who would have predicted that we would be in another Lockdown, this time last year? To say it has been an 'interesting' year is a bit of an understatement. EckO hopes that you are all in good health and spirits and focusing on the future. With that in mind EckO would like to draw your attention to what you can do now and some things to look forward to.

New to Orienteering?

Orienteering Control

Orienteering is a sport that combines map reading and running. Competitors have to find their way between a series of checkpoints, called controls, as quickly as possible. There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.
