Where 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 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.


Our annual club event/social calendar includes:

  • March – Club AGM
  • April – JK Dinner
  • June – Club Championships & BBQ
  • July – Stragglers Relays
  • July – Gooseberry Fool
  • November – Annual Dinner.
