What is Orienteering?

Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport which involves walking or running whilst navigating around a course using a detailed map and sometimes a compass. The aim is to navigate in sequence between a set of control points and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace.
Orienteering can take place anywhere from remote forest and countryside to urban parks and school playgrounds. It's a great sport for runners, joggers and walkers who want to improve their navigation skills or for anyone who loves the outdoors.

Club Meetings

We hold monthly meetings at the Basingstoke Sports & Social Club on the second Wednesday of each month at 8:00pm.
However the next meeting - the AGM - is on October 26th and we hope as many members as possible will attend.
