Liked what you saw at Saturday's "Come and Try It" event at Longrun?
UK squad member Graham Gristwood presents this clear, straightforward, fast-paced video describing the basics for those curious about or keen to see more of the sport.
At Longrun Meadow
Would you like to try the sport for the first time or perhaps once more? Or do you know someone who might? If so, you will be made very welcome at our event on Saturday (19th), based at French Weir Park, Taunton, adjacent to Longrun Meadow.

Junior Orienteering Group
Our Junior Orienteering Group (JOG) runs during term-times holding low-key weekly events aimed at juniors, families and all those looking to improve or to train.
Tips for improvement
Tips for all those who have reached the level of Orange (or Badger course at JOG) i.e.
- an adult beginner
- a junior improver
Some of those doing harder courses may often still need to master these techniques though.
Within the club's area
If you're a newcomer keen to improve, you’d like to keep your orienteering skills up to scratch or you're after a form of exercise that's both affordable and can be done at your own pace, why not head out to one of the Permanent Orienteering Courses available in the vicinity?
Running until early December, our Autumn season had one event every weekend. Terrain varied from open hill top and woods to parkland or college campus and we visited two new venues.
