Race Description

Thames Valley Orienteering Club invites you to try a run with a difference – a physical workout with an added mental challenge! It’s a race with no set route – try orienteering!

There’ll be several courses, up to 5k, and no experience is necessary. You’ll receive a special orienteering map showing your course, consisting of a series of checkpoints. At each point in the woods, you’ll find a marker flag. The challenge is to race between the checkpoints, using your map to choose your route between them and registering them with an electronic timing chip (hey, we need to know you’ve visited them!). When you return to the finish, your timing chip will be downloaded and you’ll receive a print out of your times. Great fun!

Not only that, but it’s a great family activity too – as we’ll have shorter courses for children and families. Just come along any time from 10am to 11.30am and you can start a course any time up to midday.

Why not give it a go – just don’t forget your sense of adventure!
