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.
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.
Final, West Midlands
Backed by our brilliant support team, 18 members ran for the club at the national final of this inter-club tournament on Sunday. Up against some very stiff competition, we still managed to beat a couple of clubs.
at JOG (Fox course)
The Fox course is a training exercise for seniors and juniors from those who are on the verge of trying Light Green at senior events and upwards. Depending on how much of a challenge you want to give your runners, there are all sorts of imaginative possibilities.
An experienced member of another club who's been a regular at our Forest League events over many years has praised the club for providing clear, large scale maps for juniors. Surprisingly, it appears 'going large' isn't always the norm elsewhere.
