Virtual Orienteering Courses (VOCs)

Virtual Orienteering Courses (VOCs). This is a new category on our website where we have set up a specific link on our home page to provide general information and details of courses which now have been made available. VOC's have been developed to enable a person with the aid of an App (UsynligO or MapRun) to follow a virtual course using the App on their smart phone to locate various controls on an orienteering map.

In the present situation with COVID-19 normal orienteering has been suspended but with VOC's one can now as an individual go out and run any of these courses and get your times recorded, you can also compare your times with others who have done the same course.  You can re-run the course as many times as you desire, ideal for training runs or just for fun. You do not need to be a professional orienteer, any individual or family can have a go, whether you run it or walk does not really matter the main thing is to have fun.
