Go Orienteering Anytime

We have a selection of locations where you can go orienteering at any time that suits you.
Permanent courses have marker posts, whilst Virtual courses have nothing visible but your phone beeps when you are in the right spot.

Most of our Permanent courses can be used with the MapRun app as well.

Virtual Orienteering Courses

MapRun is an app which allows you to use your smartphone to enjoy orienteering without needing to set up physical control points on the ground. There are now MapRun courses set up all across the UK which you can go and run right now, with more new ones being added all the time.

Using MapRun, you can run an orienteering course using either the map on your phone screen or a paper version; the only difference from a "traditional" course is that there are no physical markers on the ground. Instead, the phone tracks your location as you run and vibrates or buzzes to confirm when you've reached each control point on the course.

Permanent Orienteering Courses

These courses have fixed marker posts in place. Your challenge is to discover checkpoints in the form of posts or plaques, in forests, heathlands, parks and green spaces.
