Recognising and celebrating our juniors!
We are now well into May and although we can get out more than once a day now, lockdown is set to continue so make the most of some options coming up - some need to be signed up to by today...
It's strange to think that a week ago as a club we would have been celebrating a very successful, sunny SOL2 at Coille Nathais. However, it was not to be. Life has changed dramatically for all of us but EckO hopes that all its members are well in body and mind. Life will return to a 'new normal' but when - nobody can predict. It is clear now that we should stay at home and only travel when essential. However, there are many things we can do to keep ourselves fit and active and hone our orienteering skills.
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.
