British Orienteering is pleased to support the use of virtual and permanent Orienteering courses. The promotion and use of virtual and permanent Orienteering courses relate only to England, NI and the Isle of Man, as COVID-19 Policy and Guidance in Scotland and Wales currently restrict some of these activities. For more info on courses, you can do with your smartphone see our Virtual Orienteering page
Permanent Orienteering Courses are a great way to get outside and go orienteering at a time and place that suits you. Courses offer a huge range of variety, from urban courses in city centres to rural routes through beautiful scenery. They are on your doorstep or further afield helping you to discover new places.
Whatever your level of experience and fitness, there are courses to suit you. A colour coding system makes it easy to find a course that is right for the level of challenge you are looking for. More information on the colour coding system can be found in our newcomer's guide.
Whether it's a different walk with the family, exploring the area whilst on holiday or simply just adding variety to a training run, Permanent Orienteering Courses can help you explore.
