Christmas Fun Event at Fota


Join us for some Christmas orienteering fun at Fota on Friday December 27th and work off that Christmas dinner!

We’ll have a wayfarer’s course (suitable for beginners and family groups) that you can set off on at any time 11.00-12.30. For the more competitive and/or adventurous there will be a group start ‘score’ event which will set off at 12.00pm sharp – please come early register and warm up. The ‘score’ format means that you must get as many controls as possible within the allowed time. The group start will have everyone zig-zagging in all directions across the beautiful (and, thankfully, flat) gardens at Fota.

Tea/coffee and some Christmas treats will be available afterwards!

Like last year, all proceeds from this fun event will be going to the Jack and Jill Foundation.
