Where We Are

We cover not only the Epping Forest area to the NE of London, but also the London boroughs of Redbridge, Newham & Waltham Forest plus W Essex (Woodford, Loughton, Harlow & Saffron Walden) & E Herts (Broxbourne, Sawbridgeworth & Bishop’s Stortford)

What We Do

“Orienteering means maps, forests, adventure. It doesn’t matter how young, old or fit you are. Run, jog or walk …”

Social Events

We have a number of informal social activities in pubs and restaurants after events throughout the year, and training sessions provide an excellent opportunity to meet other club members. Most CHIG social activities take place at member’s houses, rather than formal function rooms, or at major annual events.
