Every Tuesday we go out orienteering, usually with a navigational focus. Call it training or just playing, it’s as hard as you want it to be, both physically and technically!
Newcomers are welcome and there is always someone to explain things and help you get started.
Orienteering is an exciting and challenging adventure sport. It's easy for anyone to start and fun to do. You learn to navigate, develop confidence and discover new places. Orienteering is a sport that exercises both your mind and body.
Two updates added 7th January 2019
Welcome to 2019 - and orienteering locally and maybe a bit further away? Some events are coming along soon, it may be winter but there is plenty to go to. Some other events are a bit further away but are cheaper if you enter early.
Please remember to check that you have renewed your BOF or SOA membership - this seems to have slipped by quite a few of you!
I notice some have changed age class this year - enjoy the challenges of this!
Remember that Tuesday training continues, check the BASOC website for updates regarding this.

Orienteering is a sport that combines map reading and running. Competitors have to find their way between a series of checkpoints, called controls, as quickly as possible. There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.
