Orienteering is an exciting, challenging sport. It involves competitive navigation using a map and compass - competitors choose their own way between control points. Most orienteering takes place in woodland or on open hillsides, but can also take place in school playgrounds and urban parks.
For beginners, we recommend one of our Saturday Events, or perhaps try one of our District Events (or maybe at one of the other local clubs), which will always have beginners courses and helpful advice from the club members.
We always welcome new members, - detailed information about the club and joining us is in the Joining BKO page.
