A run with a twist - hunting posts in Hampstead Heath
I really like going for muddy trail runs with the dog (much better than pounding the pavement), and like discovering new outdoor areas. Add a treasure-hunt style challenge and voilà, you’re orienteering. You don’t need any technical kit, it’s very affordable and there are events held most weekends in rural and urban areas, as well as dozens of fixed courses in forests and parks across Britain that are FREE. It’s one of the most fun ways to get outside for a few hours.
