AWAITING LINK

Orienteering

Visitors who enjoy a more active way of exploring the park may like to have a go at orienteering. It involves map reading to locate control points throughout the park. There are six courses ranging from a very easy 1.7km on the main tracks to a very technical 6.1km that will test even the best orienteers, the range of courses will suit different levels of ability.

It can be used as an individual exercise to take you around different parts of Hogmoor or as a group activity with a timed course to bring in a friendly element of competition with the opportunity to then discuss your route with others, perhaps in the cafe afterwards over a coffee or back at home!

 

Digital orienteering

All the courses at Hogmoor have a small QR code label to denote the physical location of the checkpoints,  the plate shows the control code, plus 4 other codes in each corner.

The QR code when scanned takes the user to the GO orienteering page at orienteering.org.uk

The MapRun app will send you a notification (bleep on your device and a message will also pop up with the control number) when you are within 20 meters of each correct location. The map can be viewed on your electronic device and paper copies may be available in the future.

There is also a handy digital alternative and you just need a smartphone or tablet to have a go on any of the 6 courses at Hogmoor. Simply download the free MapRun app and complete any course at your leisure. 

You can also run with a Garmin Watch running MapRunG or any GPS Watch using the "Any Track" feature.
