Newcomer Ian Trussler posted: “I do believe in trying new things occasionally. Today was the first time I had tried orienteering. I wish I had tried it years ago. It’s everything I love – a run in nice countryside, some technical map-reading (not TOO technical but the better you are, the less mistakes you make!) and some really nice people. Not my last orienteering event!”
