This Lockdown, QO is taking on a challenge. As a club, we want to run Land’s End to John O’Groats and back again. Well, virtually, anyway. We’ll add up all your runs during daily exercise, be that a visit to a permanent orienteering course in your local area, a quick trip to the shops and back, or laps of your garden.

Update: We made it to John O'Groats on 31/1/21- less than a month to do it!

A typical distance for the one-way challenge is 1350km, so we’re going with that as the target. Of course, back again doubles it to 2700km, all before Lockdown ends.

Keep a log of your runs, backdating to 4 January if you want, then every now and then log record them using the form at the bottom of this page. As time goes on, you can watch our progress on the map below...
