Last year we were fortunate enough to be able to enter a team into BUCS orienteering and plan to do so again this year. To best prepare ourselves for this exciting event we regularly attend races organised by the local club ‘Octavian Droobers’ and we hope to offer some training additional to prepare those who would like to compete for the club.
If you are interested in improving your navigation, running or just getting outside more regularly then look out for regular updates on our Facebook group for the events that we will be heading to.
We are also entering several teams into the OMM (Original Mountain Marathon) this October. This is basically orienteering on a bigger scale: the event spans two days, during which you have to carry everything you need for the days and to camp for a night.
There are various other similar events throughout the year, such as the Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon. There are courses of varying difficulty at all these events, so even those with limited experience can take part.
