Explore the Holywell dunes with Cornwall Orienteering Club and put your map reading skills to the test. An all age adventure, suitable for beginners right through to expert explorers, there will be a range of different courses to take on. Walk, jog or run, it’s up to you. We can provide you with advice and maps to try out orienteering in this stunning coastal landscape. All finished off with a BBQ, what could be better?

Meet at Holywell car park, SW 767 587, TR8 5PF

Start the course anytime between 3.00pm and 5.00pm
Dress for the weather and wear suitable footwear for walking around the sand dunes. Bring a compass if you have one though not essential for the easier courses. Bring a picnic/ food to cook on the BBQ.
