Whitekirk Hill Classic
On April 30th, Whitekirk Hill near North Berwick will play host to a South of Scotland League event, and you’re invited to join in on the fun!
Whether you’re an experienced orienteer or completely new to the sport, this event has something for everyone. With a variety of courses on offer, including beginner courses, this is the perfect opportunity to experience orienteering in a larger event setting.
In addition to the beginner courses, we’re excited to offer a “follow-the-string” orienteering course for young children – this special course has been designed specifically for children who may not yet be ready to navigate with a map and compass. Instead, children can follow a string trail through the woods, which will lead them to a series of fun and interactive checkpoints.
This is a great way to introduce young children to the sport of orienteering and the fun of being outdoors. Children will be able to explore the beautiful Whitekirk Hill while enjoying a fun and interactive activity.
Parents can accompany their children on the course, or let them explore independently if they feel comfortable doing so. It’s a wonderful opportunity for families to enjoy a day out together and encourage children to get active and engaged with the natural world.
Whitekirk Hill is a stunning location for orienteering, with a mix of woodland and open hillside terrain to navigate through. The courses have been designed to challenge your skills and offer a fun and enjoyable experience for all levels of orienteers.
If you’ve never tried orienteering before, don’t worry! There will be experienced orienteers on hand to provide guidance and support, and the beginner courses are designed to be accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
But even if you’re an experienced orienteer, the South of Scotland League event at Whitekirk Hill is not to be missed. This event attracts orienteers from across Scotland and beyond, so you’ll have the chance to test your skills against some of the best in the region.
And after the event, you’ll have the opportunity to relax and socialize with fellow orienteers, swapping stories and experiences over some refreshments in the cafe at Whitekirk Hill.
So mark April 30th in your calendar and head on down to Whitekirk Hill for a day of orienteering fun. With courses for everyone and a beautiful location to explore, this is an event not to be missed.
