Durlston Country Park Permanent Orienteering Course


Durlston Country Park (BH19 2JL): park in the Durlston CP car park (parking charges apply).

Information about orienteering around the permanent course can be obtained from Durlston Castle. You can buy a map from the Castle as well, during opening hours, or preferably, download and print your own from the link below.

If you have a smartphone, the course uses the MapRun app (download from: maprunners.weebly.com) or without a smartphone, use paper & pencil to write down the markers as you find them!
Detailed instructions for the app & the courses can be downloaded below.

There are 3 courses:

Accessible/Short course: (2.0k  All controls by paths)
Long course:  (5.0k  includes unsurfaced trails with lots of ups & downs!)
Score course:  (Find all 24 controls in ANY order  -  plan the quickest route, but as with the long course, lots of ups & downs!)
