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.

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.
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.
What is Orienteering?
If you haven't tried orienteering before or are not very experienced these pages should explain everything you need to get started.
All courses visited the tower at the top of the hill so everyone had a chance to catch their breath and enjoy the views!
It was good to see people chatting at the end comparing their courses and discussing their route choices.
