Formed in 1964 as one of the founding clubs of UK orienteering, we are a keen friendly club, regularly staging orienteering events and part of the South East Orienteering Association. Our membership lives mainly within 15 miles of Guildford, but also encompasses those much further afield.
Members range from the young to the young at heart, casual fun runners through to serious athletes.
Because of the COVID-19 virus lockdown all UK orienteering activities have been suspended since 17 March. But when all this is over we look forward to planning some more orienteering events! In the meantime, to improve your skills (or to keep your O-brain active) why not try a few Orienteering Lockdown Activities:
- Chris Smithard’s Lockdown Page with a variety of Maps, Games, Challenges, Puzzles & Competitions.
- If you live near Newlands Corner, Guildford, then for your daily exercise you could try our permanent orienteering course – free download from the British Orienteering website (note that the Car Park is closed).
- You could try Graham Relf’s free browser based O-simulation “The Forest” at https://myforest.uk, it will certainly help you interpret contours better – but you’ll need to read the user guide beforehand!
- Or SN’s O-Puzzles of the local area
