Orienteering Training – Greenhead Park

Posted: Sunday, June 5th, 2011

If anyone is interested in learning about orienteering (running with a map), I have been passed on details of our local club’s (East Pennine Orienteering Club) current training night.  Details are as follows:

Welcome everyone to our new Orienteering Training and Coaching sessions

When: Monday evenings 6:30-8pm.

Where: Greenhead Park, Huddersfield. HD1 4DT
Meet at the new Community Room which is next to the cafe. There are (clean!) toilets adjacent.

What: We will spend part of the session outdoors doing activities related to orienteering. These will include fun exercises for both strength, speed and cario-vascular training, and also for agility and flexibility, all very useful for orienteering!
We will also do a wide variety of thinking activities designed to improve orienteering skills from any level (the design is my challenge!)

Importantly: the sessions are a chance to meet fellow orienteers in a warm, dry, sociable environment and find out more about the sport and competitions.

Tea/coffee/soft drinks and biscuits will be a permanent feature.

No experience necessary
Suitable for all fitness levels, ages and abilities.
Everyone welcome including families and individuals
£1 juniors (under 18) £2 adults £3 families
