Hunt for Missing Results

20 years

Our historical results archive has grown this week thanks to member and mapper Bill Vigar digging out some from 2005 to 2015.

We are currently focussing on results since 2000, but hope to grow the archive back beyond this in time.

If you think you might have some old sets of results, have a look at our archive to see what's missing...

Easter Orienteering

Easter Egg Orienteering

Why not do a bit of Easter Egg O instead of the usual hunt?

You could make a course and hide eggs at the controls. Perhaps even make it a score course, with hard controls having more or better eggs.

Some of our families did a similar thing for Hallowe'een.

Maintenance to the Longrun POC

Post With Qo Qr Plate

And an upgrade...

Our President and our Membership officer have been out and about checking the wooden posts on the Longrun Meadow Permanent Orienteering Course. Replacement plaques have been made and attached, and more significant structural repairs to one post are being arranged.

New QR code plaques have been added, allowing their use with MapRun6 QR punching. We'll be releasing a new range of courses using these in the near future.

QR Code Orienteering

Post With Qo Qr Plate

Hello! It looks like you scanned one of our QR codes.

These are used in some events and activities and are scanned by competitors using the MapRun6 app to prove they successfully navigated to a particular location. The organisers remove them after the event closes (unless they are part of a permanent course).
