Navigation for Running

August 16, 2017, 6:00pm - August 16, 2017, 9:00pm

Despite using GPS watches, we are still beholden to our navigational skills for adventuring off piste. This course will provide you with some basic skills which we will put to the test, so you can take it to the next level next time round.

Suitable for runners, walkers, individuals & groups.

Whether you are completely new to off road running, or aim to sharpen your skills for a mountain marathon and are just a bit rusty with a map and compass, WR’s navigation courses on Dartmoor in Devon, aim to provide you with the basic skills to traverse tricky moorland landscapes. There will be a large practical elemnt to this course and Ceri will set an orienteering trail beforehand for groups to aim for.


Skills/Technique training
Set a Compass bearing from map to ground.
Use a compass to follow bearings accurately across open ground over short legs.
Measure distances with reasonable accuracy by double pacing and timing.
Estimate the time needed for height gain.
Use major landforms (hills, spurs, valleys, ridges) as a means of navigation.
Identify smaller contour features on a map and ground ie re entrants and small hills.
Use aiming off to reach a target on a linear feature.
Identify the most appropriate route, where more than one is available.
Use coarse navigation and collection features to locate an attack point.
We will also provide GPS navigation techniques (upon request), including downloading and uploading routes and getting the most out of your device.

Instruction from qualified Mountain Leader, experienced mountain runner and OMM lite long course winnner Ceri.

Cost: £50. Contact Ceri info@wildrunning.co.uk if interested
