After dark orienteering / QOADS
"Night Nav" attracts a small but enthusiastic group of orienteers. There are a few leagues in the South West area. Newcomers can read our guides to getting started further below.
QOADS was an annual series of night events, which ran from 2010 to 2018.
QOADs stood for Quantock Orienteers After Dark Series and was founded by Will Kromhaut, who came up with the idea of its score course, which catered for all abilities.
