A Permanent Orienteering Course (POC) is a perfect way for getting active, enjoying the scenery and green spaces with your family, or as a chance to get outdoors for a competitive time trial. They are an opportunity for individuals and families to orienteer at any time. You don’t need any special equipment to get started so why not test your skills and give a POC a try? With over 500 POCs throughout the UK there should be something nearby. You can find out details of all these POCs on the website of British Orienteering.
For those new to orienteering an Orienteering Foundation video available on YouTube gives you a great idea of what to expect:
At present Border Liners only have one permanent course active. Talkin Tarn Country Park, Brampton We have plans to develop further POCs across the region so do check back from time to time to see what might be available. Our neighbouring club, West Cumberland Orienteering Club, has a POC at Whinlatter Forest, and Newcastle & Tyneside Orienteers has a POC at Walltown Crags at Greenhead. Information for both of these POCs can also be found on the British Orienteering website.
