Grace Merrilees from 7LAW has written on her experiences:
On Thursday 16 March I had my first taste of orienteering, and OMG I loved it! At the Start Box my team and I all stared at our maps, totally baffled, but then we found where we were and figured out the orientation of the map. In each team everyone ran a different course. It was sometimes hard to find your ‘control marker’ because there were so many others around. Once or twice I got really lost, mostly because I had run straight past the control marker I was looking for without realising it. We were told that the run was 1.5 km, but I’m sure I ran at least twice that! It was a really fun experience, which I will definitely do again! Try it out you’ll love it!
