Postbox O

Last Updated: Wed 22 Sep 2021

Simpler orienteering courses and maps where the controls are postboxes.

We incorporate Postbox orienteering into our training activities, but since the controls are permanent, you can also run these courses at any time and as many times as you want. The courses are in SCORE format, with control with codes < 100 worth 10 points, between 100 and 200 worth 20 points, and > 200 worth 30 points. You can choose yourself if you want a 60, 40 or 20 minute time limit.
