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
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 (click here to see an explanation of the symbols used on the map). There is no set route so the skill and fun come from trying to find the quickest way to go. To find out more, click here to see a series of 5 minute videos produced by fellow club SLOW, and here to see the newcomer’s guide.
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 (to see a list of all virtual courses near you, click here).
These permanent and virtual courses are a great way to learn about orienteering, as are our coaching sessions in Epping Forest. The next sessions are as follows: 11th December, 22nd January, 26th February, 25th April. Further details are on our Training page, available here.
Our next competitive event is The Mitre, taking place on Sunday 5th December 2021 in Epping North. For details click here. On the day before, the South East Sprints are taking place at Chatham Historic Dockyard – so why not make a weekend of exciting orienteering in two contrasting areas (click here for details of the Chatham event).
