Please ask if you would like any help choosing which course to do. It is best to choose an easier course to start with if you are new to orienteering. The distance is the straight line between controls on the map but the actual distance you cover will be longer depending on your route choices. 


Yellow Courses use simple linear features like paths, walls and streams with the controls visible from the linear feature. They are suitable for newcomers, under 12’s and family groups.

Orange Courses progress to basic use of the compass and route choice. There are line features to follow including paths, walls, fences and streams but with the option to cut corners. They are ideal for novice adults or experienced youngsters.

Light Green Courses are ideal for improvers as the navigational difficulty begins to increase and uses simple contours and ‘point’ features away from linear features. Learning how to use contours, compass, distance estimation and route choice. Planned with a ‘collecting linear feature’ beyond the control to help you if you overshoot and go too far. 

Green, Blue and Brown Courses are more physically and technically demanding course using interpretation of contours, recognition of indistinct features, concentration over long distance.
