Sustrans and Swindon Travel Choices are providing free orienteering activity packs from local leisure centres and Central Library from Monday 14 April to Monday 21 April 2014.
Swindon families are being invited to bust school holiday boredom, by trying out walking or cycling their local orienteering “round,” with free activity packs from Sustrans and Swindon Travel Choices
Orienteering involves finding a series of markers attached to lamp posts, railings or sign posts, using a map with the locations marked, and a set of clues.
There are three orienteering ‘rounds’ in Swindon – one in the west, north, and south-east. Each ‘round’ is a 7-mile loop on traffic-free walking and cycling routes.
Orienteering packs, with all the information needed, are available free of charge from Swindon Central Library and any of the following leisure centres receptions, from Monday 14 April to Monday 21 April:
Delta Tennis Centre
Croft Sports Centre
Dorcan Recreation Complex
Alternatively, the maps and clues can be downloaded for free any time from Swindon Travel Choices’ website: www.swindontravelchoices.co.uk
Those who find all the markers on their ‘round’ can return their forms to Sustrans to receive a reward.
