Welcome to the Oxford University Orienteering Club website!
Orienteering is a sport which provides different things for different people. For some, it is merely about the opportunity to escape from the city and run in natural environments they'd never otherwise visit. For others, it is about the challenge of finishing a course using fine navigation techniques. Finally, it is also an extremely competitive sport which requires its elites to maintain an extremely high level of physical performance.
At Oxford, orienteering is a Blues sport which provides an opportunity for its members to orienteer for whatever reason they choose. The club supports a range of abilities and always welcomes beginners: roughly half of our members took up the sport at Oxford whilst some had made the GB squad before they arrived! The most effective way for an orienteer to improve is through gaining experience in the forest, which the club facilitates by regularly going to events on the weekend.
