Audlem Orienteering — Two New O-Ring Courses

After some great feedback last time, the Audlem O-Ring (Mk.2) is returning for the Whitsun break. As before, there will be 2 routes for keen walkers, joggers and/or active people of all abilities and ages to take on.

The SHORT COURSE is approximately 6km (depending on navigational choices) and has 4 control points to find in the local area. It would be ideal for beginners to orienteering and young families.

The LONG COURSE is more challenging than its previous incarnation at around 14km in distance — again depending on the chosen route. It has 5 control points.

I'm organising the event through my own business — Spokes and Laces — but will still be linking up with Pau Run and Ride in the village who have kindly agreed to act as the start and finish point.

You will need an OS Map (Explorer 257) or the OS Maps App for navigation between points, as well as footwear appropriate for footpaths, bridleways and towpaths. Those attempting the long course are encouraged to take some food and water as they may be out for a couple of hours or more.

The control points will be in place from Friday 26th May until Friday 9th June — giving everyone 2 weeks in which to have a go at either or both courses.

It's completely free and it would be great if you could share photos of you on the course or having completed it on the Spokes and Laces Facebook page ( or here on AudlemOnline.
