Get active with self-led sports

Running

The Repton Run Routes that cross the Deer Park are perfect for a gentle jog or a family race challenge. Head around the front of the Mansion to the Deer Park Bridge where the 1.5km, 2.5km and 4.5km routes start from.

 

Orienteering

Orienteering is all about adventure and navigation. The aim is, using only a map and a compass, to move between control points and complete the course in the quickest time possible. Whatever your age, whatever your pace, orienteering is for anyone, anywhere who wants to improve their navigational skills and really get involved with their surroundings.

Download our Berwick Route orienteering trail map, bring along a compass and have a go.
