New to orienteering? It's a  walk/run with a difference - an orienteering race doesn't follow a set route. Instead you have to visit a series of checkpoints and register each one with an electronic timing chip. The checkpoints are marked by flags on the ground and may be along paths, fences, earth banks, streams or anywhere in the woods. The challenge is to race between each one, choosing your own route between the checkpoints, using a special orienteering map (which you get to keep too). Why not come and give it a go?

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.

Aberystwyth University 2018

,

Date of event: Sun 16th Dec 18
Level of event: Local (D)
Nearest town: Aberystwyth

Hope Storm Deidre is kind to you today wherever you are - she is forecast to have blown through by tomorrow. Please come dressed for the weather - Christmas themed hats very welcome! Hopefully the campus will be ice free tomorrow and take care on the roads if travelling  from the east. You can park in the car park across the Aber-Clarach road opposite Fferm Penglais. Please remember Aber Uni is a dog free zone. Please accompany Under 16 juniors  to check safety on road crossings. The short course avoids any really busy roads but the roads that are usually completely car free may have some car access collecting students from accommodation although most will be leaving today. 

Do join us  for lunch and awards at Ta Med Da afterwards.

This event is organised by Mid Wales Orienteering Club with kind permission from Prifysgol Aberystwyth University. It is open to everyone, so come and give orienteering a go - the great outdoors game!

It's an urban event around Aberystwyth University planned by Megan, our GB elite squad orienteer. 

It'll take you to parts of the university that other activities fail to reach and afterwards we'll be celebrating the past year of O with a meal on campus at Ta Med Da - the more the merrier and a great chance for everyone to meet like minded folks, share stories and experiences. 

So folks make sure the Aber Uni O event on  December 16th is in your calendar. 

A warm welcome awaits you all! x
