The sport of orienteering is a combination of map-and-compass skills and fitness. Especially when set in the hills, it's nothing but competitive hill walking: the perfect sport for a mountaineer.
Each year we send a team to the BUCS orienteering races. To best prepare ourselves for this exciting event we regularly attend races organised by the local club ‘Octavian Droobers’. These usually happen on a Saturday or Sunday morning.
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.
