New to Orienteering?
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.
EBOR and other local clubs also run small local events which are a fantastic way to start the competitive side of Orienteering. Details of our Events can be found here as well as on the British Orienteering Website.
