From a running perspective, you will learn about the relevant differences between the two main Ordnance Survey scales, 1:25 000 and 1:50 000 and ensure you are comfortable using both. We will also introduce the 1:40 000 scale and discuss how and when you might start using this scale in the future.
You will get the tips, tricks and recommendations on your navigation kit set up (map and compass) which will enhance your navigation accuracy and speed up your learning process.
“I attended the Online Navigation Masterclass for Trail Runners. I found it very useful, with the information presented in a friendly and engaging way. As someone who has never used maps to navigate on trail runs (and instead relied on my watch map), the course has set me up well with the basics. It had a good mix of theory and practical tips on what to do when heading out for a run with a map and compass. Definitely recommend for others who want to learn about trail running with maps!” Alice,
