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 events have been suspended since 17 March. But you can still enjoy socially distanced orienteering in the outdoors with a Virtual Orienteering course (also known as MapRunF) or a Permanent Orienteering course (our club’s is at Newlands Corner, Guildford, but there are many others).
Other activities to keep your brain “O”-ctive are:
- Chris Smithard’s Lockdown Page with a variety of Maps, Games, Challenges, Puzzles & Competitions.
- 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 & their latest Bagshot jigsaw.
