Organized orienteering activities are now all cancelled.
OSA will provide some tips here on orienteering at home.
At the moment the DIY courses are available (see video 1 below also), however before undertaking any activity please ensure you are update to date on the Dept. Of Health guidelines and follow all their requirements with respect to soclal distancing. Also please do not undertake unnecessary travel.
You can also try a "DIY" course (in the Botanic Gardens) on your phone - for this you need to install the MapRunF app on your phone and then follow these instructions. As for the DIY courses this is an individual and not a group activity. The PDF map is needed to provide the course code as described in the instructions. Because of the location - treat this as a casual walking activity.
