Welcome to our Long O section...
Long O's are now a dying breed. Our Long O offered an early season opportunity for those looking for the challenge of something a bit longer than an orienteering course, often across open moors. It's status as an annual event ceased in 2017 because of gradually reducing numbers and manpower.
It is hoped that some sort of offering will continue albeit at less frequent intervals, possibly using the MapRun app and without the organisational burden of a registered event day.
Other Long O's
Wrekin OC have an annual event (c. mid September) in Shropshire
South Ribble OC tend towards an event every other year, often in the Lake District.
