There are loads of ways for you to get involved in Orienteering. Club night runs weekly during school term time and is a great starting point. We have coaches on hand to help you in your first sessions.
We also have our Anytime Events using MapRun, a way to Orienteer using your phone or smartwatch. These are free, you just need to print the map and download the app.
