Orienteering at Burbage Common

walking in burbage common woods

Orienteering is an outdoor adventure sport. The aim is to navigate between control points marked on a unique orienteering map and to decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time.

It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace. It's a great sport for runners, joggers and walkers who want to improve their navigation skills or for anyone who loves the outdoors.

Burbage Common has a permanent orienteering course which was installed with the help and advice of Leicestershire Orienteering Club. There are three different pre-set courses available, an easy route for beginners, a medium route and a hard route for those more experienced. The maps for these courses can be obtained from British Orienteering. We hope you enjoy the course around the ancient woodlands and grasslands of Burbage Common and Woods.
