The BBC Scotland Adventure Show came and tried night orienteering in Darnick before Christmas and you now have the chance to try the course. See the event page on the right hand side of this page, Pre-entry essential.
The club can’t accept non-members or beginners at races at the moment due to Covid rules but everyone can still take part in “Virtual” orienteeering if they have a smartphone. See the heading above about MapRun and Permanent Courses.
We are planning 5 events over the next few weeks but for the moment these are restricted to club members only. This isn’t ideal but is the current agreement between Scottish Orienteering and SportScotland which allows us to have any orienteering events. Members will be emailed details of all the events. All events are strictly pre-entry, do not turn up on the day without having submitted an entry form.
We hope to welcome back non-members before too long. Remember that there are permanent courses and MapRun courses for you to enjoy meantime.
Whilst we can’t get together for any organised orienteering remember that there are still virtual MapRun courses available. These are open to everyone, not just club members, see the information under the MapRun and Permanent Courses tab above.
The 2 Selkirk Hill MapRun courses used on Boxing Day are now available for everyone. In the MapRunF App download either the Selkirk Hill Score or Selkirk Hill Scatter plus the corresponding map below, although they’re the same controls so either map would suffice. If the “Events Near Me” link in MapRunF doesn’t work use “Select Event” and then UK – Scotland – Borders – Roxburgh Reivers….
We held our first Boxing Day activity in 1990 so are celebrating 30 years in 2020. By necessity it’s going to be different so this year will be a virtual “MapRun” on Selkirk Hill. See the details on the Upcoming Events link.
