Event Description

Meeting at Tim Hortons Cafe, Connswater Shopping Centre, Belfast, BT5 5DL at 7pm to jog out to the start location, on a part of the map you won’t have seen yet.

Wednesday will be a sad day for the friends of Colin Henderson and so this Sporteering on Wednesday evening following his funeral has been planned as a little tribute to Colin. Come along and find out how.

If you have been Sporteering before you will know the drill, but remember your hi-viz and headtorch. If you haven’t been before please do come and read on for the details.

This is urban score orienteering. 1 hour time limit, with 1 point lost per minute late. Controls are worth 1 to 5 points as shown on the map and in the descriptions. There is no flag nor SI unit at the control location. You verify visiting the control site with the Sporteering app.

  • An iPhone or Android mobile phone with a location function.
  • The “Sporteering” app already downloaded
  • A Sporteering account already created. (If you have problems within the app, do it at
