The DITG gym normally runs an annual Christmas charity Turkey Trot and as this year is far from normal, we have put together a very easy, fun, Christmas Orienteering route that is contained within the wire.

It is aimed and designed for all ages and can be done as a personal challenge or as a family walk. Distance is approx. 4.5km


You will have to collect your map (1 per team) from a table just inside the Gilbertine during the working week, opening hours are on the shared point.

You will also need your phones on the day you decide to complete the course. Point the camera at the QR code on the door / table, that will bring up your answer sheet online, complete this as you navigate around then submit.

Once you have completed the event at some point during the working week you can collect 1 candy cane per person. Please limit to one per person so there are plenty to go around.

If you choose to complete the route over the Christmas break, then you need to collect a map prior to the 18th Dec and make sure you scan the QR code on the door before you begin.

The challenge starts and finishes at the Christmas tree in front of the Gilbertine.

The Christmas gym elves (Cpl Sutton and Cpl Byrne) have been working hard to make the 10 check points as interesting as possible without being too hard to find. Some of the questions are aimed at adults and some are more for the younger participants.

The welfare team will deal with the issuing of the maps and Candy Canes.

If there are any issues with the markers on the course, please let the PEd team know.
