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.
For information on how to Join SWOC click here. The South Wales Orienteering Club (SWOC) is an active friendly orienteering club covering the former counties of Gwent, South Glamorgan, eastern Mid Glamorgan and southern Powys. This is from Bridgend in the West, to Chepstow in the East and Brecon in the North taking in Cardiff and Newport.

The Military League Central are trying to tempt you to join them at their Caerwent event on Wednesday 12th March.
The area is an old munitions depot with a complex network of roads, buildings and very large grassy banks. Fast running with a little pleasant woodland as well. It is fast if you keep in contact with the map but then you can easily get confused. There are 3 courses on offer: yellow, green and blue.
If you are likely to come, or not, then please fill in the form: CAERWENT ENTRY
Map updates and planning Bob Teed and Neil Grant so a quality event!
Well done to everyone who went down to Haytor. We didn't quite have the strength in depth to beat Sarum (they had 40 running) but came a creditable 2nd. Congratulations to Clare, Clem and Quinlan who won their trophy classes.
NEW - SWOC will subsidise relay entries but teams need to be decided soon.
The JK relays will be held on Monday 21st April on Pwll Ddu - being so local this is a great opportunity to take part and to encourage participation the club is offering members subsidised entries (£7 per senior discount)- but please register your interest as soon as possible with Jayne Bush so she can enter the teams before the fees increase significantly on 17th February.
As most of you know by now JK2014 is in S Wales next year using the best of the SWOC areas. For those of you who like to plan ahead and save money entries open on 1st Nov. http://www.thejk.org.uk/jk2014/
