Navigation Skills for Runners

08/05/2021 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

Keen to do more adventurous runs but worried about getting lost? Or are you interested in orienteering but don’t know where to start?

Brush up on your navigation skills with a day out on the hills with trail and fell runner and qualified Navigation Instructor, Emily Thompson. 

The course will provide you with skills to navigate in the countryside using paths, tracks and other linear features.

We will also look at more complex navigation needed for running across more difficult terrain while out orienteering, such as using compasses, making the most of contour features and tricks to allow you to be quicker at navigating while out running and orienteering.

This navigation course is designed specifically for runners although we won’t be running all day, so its essential you bring warm layers as there will be a lot of standing about practicing techniques. 

The course will be delivered by a qualified Mountain Leader and NNAS registered tutor, Emily Thompson. Emily is also a qualified first aider and an experienced member of Holme Valley Mountain Rescue team.

Social distancing will be observed throughout the day outdoors and Tinkadventures has been awarded Visit Britain’s ‘Good to Go’ standard for adhereing to COVID 19 best practice. If you want to read our COVID19 practice click here: https://tinkadventures.com/covid-19-update/
