Our annual Come-And-Try-It Orienteering event in Donadea Forest Park takes place this coming Sunday 28th Jan, with starts available from 10.30am to 1pm. The forest barrier will be (hopefully) open from 10am until 12:45pm to facilitate free entry to the park. In the unlikely event that it is not open, you can pay for parking entry (€5) via any contactless card or device at the barrier.

Location on Google Maps:

Composting toilets will be available near the Carpark. Please bring your own hand sanitiser.

Whether you are a complete novice, a family, or a seasoned veteran, there is a course to suit. The Adventure Course (all on tracks) is suitable for families or beginners. The Medium course is suitable for experienced orienteers and adult beginners and improvers who can cope with off track forest running/walking. The Long course is suitable for adult improvers and experienced people who are good at map reading and compass skills.

Three (3) courses are planned as follows:

    Adventure (~2.5km)
    Medium (~5km)
    Long (~8km)

SIAC will be enabled.
