Map reading course

Dear Members

 

Some HX runners have recently expressed an interest in becoming more familiar with map reading.  I recently attended an excellent map reading course which started at the National Trust Car Park at Coombe Hill, near Chequers.  David Jackson runs a local walking group called Chiltern Walks and regularly runs this course at a cost of £10 for the day.  The next one takes place on Saturday, 3rd September, and is highly recommended.

 

Briefly, the course covers:

  • Basic map reading and navigation
  • Planning and following a route on the map
  • What to do when lost
  • Compass reading
