On a day when there w as 3 events on, devon, oh my obelisk 1/2 marathon and bere woods
I decided on the orienteering in the woods of Dorset and wasn’t disappointed . A lovely course only made one major mistake going to 9 when i had the map wrong way and ended up at 3, believe it or not i have done this before on several occasions., throughly enjoyed it and not too wet underfoot either.

It was good to return having last orienteered here in 1995. Comparing maps the main changes were an increase in dark green areas but the white areas were very open and with dead bracken. This allowed us to attempt direct lines across the forest with mixed success. A base plate compass and steadier pacing may have helped accuracy but I was enjoying the running almost too much to navigate.
