Orienteering Events

Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Activities are non competitive events used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships.

Virtual Orienteering Courses

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.

Temporary Orienteering Courses

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.
