Are you looking to do something different for the whole family while simultaneously improving your fitness and exploring the great outdoors?
Orienteering is a sport for all the family, for all ages and you don't have to be super-fit to compete. Be as competitive or as relaxed as you want, the idea is to have fun.
Orienteering events tend to be every Sunday and you will explore the great outdoors in a way you never thought possible.
From a string course for toddlers to courses for aged 75 and over and everything in between, there will be a course to suit your age and ability.
Come and try one of our local events today! Click here for a beginners guide to orienteering.
