Dunstaffnage ROMP

ROMP controls are out at Tralee.

The Dunstaffnage ROMP is now available from Sunday 10th January 2021.

Many thanks to Finlo and Ross for planning the orange and green Romp and also for putting out the controls.

If you plan to do a ROMP please ensure you follow the current Government Guidelines and do the ROMP either individually, as a family unit or under 'the meet one other person' category.

Please remember that these courses are not official orienteering registered events or activities so participants take part at their own risk.

  • PDF Maps will be available to download below. If you wish to have a map sent to you then email Alan Partridge (cost including postage £2.00)

Please remember to choose a course within your own fitness and orienteering ability. Be aware that the ground will be very wet, possibly icy and definitely slippery and tussocky in places. Take care but have fun.

As always it is really useful to have an idea about how many people are participating in the EckO monthly ROMP. In order to help us, please log your ROMP's here when you have completed one.

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.
