Final Call for British Orienteering's Coaching Journey Online Survey
Stragglers are excited to announce an opportunity for ladies to try orienteering by taking part in a free five-week course funded by This Girl Can. Beginning on Saturday 26th February and running for five weeks, women and girls are invited to attend free fun sessions to learn the skills of orienteering in the fresh air. Map skills will be put to use as participants navigate their way around Highwoods Country Park, getting some exercise and making new friends. The sessions run from 10.30 to 12, with ladies encouraged to attend all sessions if possible, as each week builds on the previous one.
