We've added a section on our website to introduce Permanent Courses and Virtual Orienteering courses, which you can take advantage of at any time - even during the current lockdown.

In line with the government announcement, training this Thursday is cancelled. Hopefully the training at Astronomy can be run next term. We are also hopeful that training can continue in a format that can meet the new rules in future weeks.
While you wait do remember that there are MapRuns!
MapRun is a way for you to enjoy orienteering in your own time, which has expanded greatly in popularity in the absence of organised events earlier in 2020.
A great way to get back into active orienteering is by visiting a Permanent Orienteering Course which can be found all over the country. WAOC currently has 4 such courses and each has been checked and updated recently. Landowners have also confirmed that visitors are welcome. Full details and links to maps can be found here.
While we are in lockdown, Bruce has been thinking of ways we can practice our orienteering skills while observing the coronavirus restrictions.

On a windy day on 8th March at Rowney Warren a team of 17 WAOC Juniors, headed up by Junior Captain Alex Wetherill, assembled to run in the qualifying heat of this year's competition against HH, OD, TVOC & NOR.

Many congratulations to all the competitors and thanks to all the parents who supported us.
