Outdoor sports e.g. orienteering

Re-introduce sports such as orienteering where social distancing can be observed.

Why the contribution is important

To help a return to normal and to encourage exercise - usually in family groups.

    Reintroduce open water swimming please. It's very low risk and is especially important for those of us who use it to manage chronic health conditions inc. arthritis, fibromyalgia, depression and anxiety.

    The more people are outdoors and active, the better it is for their immune systems and thus resistance to infection. Locking people up reduces their immunity. Get people outdoors.

    People who sail or swim in the sea are more likely to maintain their physical and mental health.

    Any outdoor sport that does not put mountain rescue or other emergency services at higher risk. Orienteering can be done locally and is the same risk as a walk or run. Other more risky outdoor activities (rock climbing, Munro bagging, sailing as examples) may still put too much risk to many other people at this point.
