Celebrating Permanent and Virtual Orienteering Courses across the UK

Over the next few weeks and as part of Get Active this Autumn, British Orienteering will be profiling a Permanent Orienteering Course every week. 

Permanent and Virtual Orienteering Courses are a fantastic local, flexible and accessible way to keep or get involved with our sport so what makes your local course so special? Each week to keep our orienteering passion burning bright we want to share one inspiring example from a UK club. This week's comes from Harlequins Orienteering Club in the West Midlands who have recently relaunched and reenergised their Arrow Valley Orienteering Permanent Orienteering Courses, for example incorporating two different brochures / sets of courses to target different markets as well as adding MapRun to adapt to today's enthusiasm for all things virtual.
