CorkO Training Day: Tir na Spideoige, Inchigeela SATURDAY 7TH MARCH

Post date: Feb 25, 2020 10:16:42 PM

For anybody looking to progress or, improve their open-mountain orienteering, CorkO will be hosting a technical training day on Saturday March 7th. This is especially relevant for those who hope to attend the upcoming Irish Orienteering Championships! 

The technical training event will take place at Tir na Spideoige near Inchigeela. This is an excellent technical area and was last used for Day 3 of the 2018 Shamrock O-Ringen. 

The training will help people get to grips with contours which will be a benefit to their orienteering in general and especially for the Irish championships and provincial championships. The training will be tailored for the participants and is sure to be fun for all.

Check out the following link to see the type of exercises that took place our last training day in Tir na Spideoige back in March 2019.  

The training will start at 11am and will last 60-90 minutes.

Bring trail shoes (they will likely get wet), a compass, open mind and clothes appropriate for the weather.

All are welcome to join us. Attendance is free of charge to CorkO members and there will be a €5 fee to non-members, payable on the morning.
