These courses are from one of our Junior Orienteering Group events in Autumn 2020.

Hare = a short White

Squirrel = a short Yellow

Badger = a short Orange *

Fox = a training course roughly at Light Green (in this case it is the Badger course but using a map with no paths) *

Once you have downloaded the map from here and printed it, you also need to find the course on the MapRun app. It will be in the UK - Somerset - JOG - Autumn 2020. The PIN the app will ask for is shown on the map.

Find out more about orienteering in Somerset by visiting the Quantock Orienteers website. We have plenty of helpful resources for newcomers and more experienced orienteers. We hold lots of different types of orienteering events, and our weekly JOG series is a great place to make your next step in orienteering.

* A couple of the dens on these courses tend to wander as children build new ones. If one of the controls has gone, just carry on and when finished email chair@quantockorienteers.co.uk who will review your GPS trace.
