Open Mountain Training This Sunday

Superb open mountain training on Meelmore this Sunday 29th April.  Lots of coaches on hand, have a go at a couple of exercises and then practise it all on a course.  It’s all in conjunction with our hub Tollymore Orienteers.  Fun & informal – really high quality standard of training, right from yellow course all the way up to TD5. Ready to go at 2pm from Meelmore Lodge, we’ll be back there by 4pm ready for tea & buns. Perfect to take your O to the next level – or fine tune ready for the Irish Champs! All the info Read More …
