The MapRun orienteering app allows you to take part in “Virtual” orienteering courses using the GPS in your smartphone (or watch) at a time convenient for yourself. You run a course using either the map on your phone screen or a paper version, and your phone will beep when you reach the correct location of each control.
As part of our ‘Go Orienteering’ Programme, EckO offer a Temporary Orienteering Course that is available for anyone to use.
The TOC will be in the area that EckO are using for training/coaching and an event for that particular month. The courses (usually 2) will be available for the whole month.
Ecko's Iris Macmillan, Ruari Cottier and Finlay Cottier were all selected to run for Scotland at last weekend's Junior Home Internationals held at Sutton Park near Birmingham
Lots of news and dates for your diaries.
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.
