Launch of the new permanent orienteering course in Spud Wood, Oughtrington.
Spud Wood will be 21 years old in 2019 and, to celebrate this milestone, Friends of Spud Wood, a local community interest company, established to support the Woodland Trust‘s management of the wood, is installing a permanent orienteering course in the wood to encourage more people to visit and enjoy the wood.
Orienteering is an exciting and challenging outdoor sport that exercises mind and body.The aim is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map.
As a recreational activity, it doesn’t matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run or walk making progress at your own pace on the courses planned to suit you.
Orienteering is a fulfilling sport for runners and walkers of all ages who want to test themselves mentally as well as physically or who want to add variety to their leisure activities.
This FREE EVENT is for everyone, no previous experience is required, you can run, walk or just stroll along. Unfortunately the course is not suitable for wheelchair users, sorry.
A timed course will be available for the competitive!
Younger children can take part too – we’ll provide a string course. Don’t know what that is? Come along and find out!
All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Meet at Oughtrington Community Centre any time from 3:00pm until the last entry at 6:30pm on the day.
Spud Wood is owned and managed by The Woodland Trust and you can find out more at their website www.woodlandtrust.org.uk.
Funded by Lymm Round Table and Friends of Spud Wood supporting The Woodland Trust.
