Watch this space for virtual orienteering...

Options exist for orienteering by yourself using your phone, or a pre-printed map that is left somewhere for you to collect. We're looking into what is working well around the rest of the country and will keep you posted.

If you live near Chingford Park, Ross Creek or are in Naseby, go and use the Permanent Courses. The Ross Creek one has just been updated and extended. Look under About Orienteering on the menu tab, in Permanent Courses. The maps are listed individually as sub-headings. Right click on the map image and save it as a jpg, then print at home.

Depending on where you live, grab your old maps of events that were in public spaces in your neighbourhood; Town Belt South, Tomahawk, Botanic Gardens/Signal Hill/University campus, Bethunes Gully, Balmacewan/Kaikorai, Woodhaugh, Mosgiel Flatland or Port Chalmers Rogaines and go and find something new on the map you have never visited before.

This event is now cancelled as a South Island Schools Championship. We will postpone the whole 3 day until a later time.
