Here’s a taste of the type of challenge I set on my Navigation for Runners courses.
Runners were tasked with getting from point A to point B; a tiny pond high on relatively featureless moorland. The pond is only visible when you get within 20 metres of it and there are no paths to follow! For anyone who knows the area there are lots of small “groughs” that look like streams but aren’t always shown on the map making it difficult to know exactly which stream is which so you need some precise skills to find the pond!
Visibility on the day was about 5km.
What strategies would you use to navigate to the pond?
