The list of MapRun venues continues to grow with the addition of the three permanent courses at Itchen Valley Country Park. A reminder that the MapRunF app is free, as is the download of maps from British Orienteering. The park is very much open for business: check out their website for details of parking, toilets, and takeaway food and drinks from the café. Many thanks to Helen who went out today to check the controls.
A prerequisite of organising or planning an event is the attendance of an Event Safety Course. British Orienteering has included this course as part of its new e-learning content which is free to participants until the end of December, thereafter the cost will be £10.
The course is also available to established organisers and planners who wish to refresh their knowledge.
More information can be found on the BO website in the eLearning section under the heading Training and Support
I'm delighted to confirm there will be a small event at Matley Heath (3km south east of Lyndhurst) next Saturday. Three courses planned by Marcus White offer a great opportunity to enjoy the New Forest in the autumn. Please come and support the club. For entry details see the events section on the website.
