WHO we are

We are a small and friendly orienteering club covering the M11 corridor: NE London and SW Essex. We welcome new members of any age and ability

WHAT is orienteering

Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport that exercises your mind and your body. It is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. The aim is to navigate between checkpoints marked on a special orienteering map. There is no set route so the skill and fun come from trying to find the quickest way to go.

WHERE can I take part

We have a range of permanent and virtual orienteering courses available which you can enjoy whenever suits you. The permanent courses are typically in rural areas like Harlow Town Park and the River Lee Country Park: click here for details. The virtual courses are in urban districts in the NE London area (e.g. Leyton): click here for details.

These permanent and virtual courses are a great way to learn about orienteering, as are our coaching events in Epping Forest.

Competitive orienteering events take place all over the country, and you can find details by clicking here. Enter your postcode in the top right to see the events nearest to you.

WHEN can I orienteer

Orienteering events have resumed in line with the Government’s COVID roadmap. The next coaching event is expected to take place on Saturday 22 May 2021
