What is a Romp?

A Romp is an orienteering activity that can be done at any time suitable to the individual/ family. There is no competitive element and hence no timing involved. A Romp can be used as a fun activity, an ordinary orienteering course or a training exercise with specific goals in mind. Please can you log your ROMP here after you have completed your course. This will give us accurate information about about the popularity of the ROMP.

Please note that participants take part at their own risk and as an individual activity it is not covered by any orienteering insurance policy.

Two courses (Orange and Green) have been planned and controls have been placed.

Orange is suitable for those who have done a little orienteering before

Green is suitable for experienced orienteers who are comfortable at TD4/ TD5

Choose a course suitable to your ability and fitness, download your map and head to Sutherland's Grove. The controls will be in place until Sunday 29th November. Each control is a small laminated orienteering kite with a code on the back so that you can check that you have the right control.
