There is a wide range of ability and experience within the club from beginners to elite orienteers, who represent Great Britain all over the world.

We run 2-3 events of varying type each month:

If you are new to orienteering a great place to start is at one of our Saturday afternoon orienteering sessions.  These are aimed at introducing new people to the sport as well as helping people improve.  They have courses suitable for everyone, are often based around a cafe on one of our areas.
