Urban orienteering activities for over-16s – participate for free at a time that suits you.

Overview – Looking for an orienteering experience without leaving the streets of Hertfordshire? We’ve set up a large collection of courses throughout Hertfordshire’s towns and villages where you can run using your phone using the MapRun6 app. Courses have been risk-assessed. For your safety you must read the pre-read information, and any additional safety information on the map. No smartphone? You can still run the course, with the option to upload your track from a GPS recorder.

Not sure how to get started? Try this MapRun quick start guide. Then print out a physical map from the “Map” link in the tables below. We also have a Street-O specific Introductory Guide

Where? See all our MapRun events on a map. This includes our park Virtual Orienteering Courses as well.

 

DIY Street-Os are great, because you can do them at any time you like. However if you have enjoyed these, or would prefer to take part with others rather than on your own, why not consider coming along to one of our Tuesday evening events (from 7pm every Tuesday between Easter and the first week in September) where we run these as a live event. You get a  fresh map and a chance to meet and catch up with other participants after the event and find out how your route was compared to theirs!

Full details of where we will be meeting for the rest of the 2022 season (up to 6th September 2022), and how to sign up for events, are available here: https://www.herts-orienteering.club/fixtures/street-o-2022/

2022 event courses:

Courses are available for DIY-O for all our 2022 events. These events are PIN-protected but the PIN is available on the map – this ensures you have all the safety and control information to hand!
MapRun courses are in the MapRun folder /UK/Hertfordshire/
