Permanent and Virtual Courses

Permanent Orienteering Courses (POCs) and Virtual Orienteering Courses (VOCs) are a great way to get outside and go orienteering at a time and place that suits you.  Courses offer a huge range of variety, from urban courses in city centres to rural routes through beautiful scenery. They are on your doorstep or further afield helping you to discover new places.

POCs are courses with traditional orienteering markers along with a typical orienteering map.  You “find” controls by reading a letter from the marker to show you visited the correct place.  More details…

VOCs don’t use orienteering markers but instead use existing features for example post boxes, lamp posts and signs in an urban environment, or trees, path junctions and hollows in a park or woodland environment.    You “find” controls using a GPS-enabled phone app which registers when you get close to the correct place.  HH offer VOCs in parkland (more details…) and on urban streets (more details…).
