Heading back to University after the Christmas break and New Year celebrations...
Looking at exercising and keeping fit between studying, try orienteering?
Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport that exercises both the mind and the body. The aim is to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a unique orienteering map 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.
University Orienteering is a great place to either continue to be involved in orienteering or start it from new. There are a number of Universities with clubs and groups around the UK.
There are many orienteering clubs already being enjoyed by many students at Universities across the UK at different stages of their studies. Some who have just started their degrees, others preparing for their finals. Orienteering challenges body and mind.
Here are details of University Orienteering Clubs with the contact links for each:
Aberdeen University Orienteering Club (AUOC)
Glasgow University Orienteering Club (GUOC)
More information about these clubs can be found here.
If your University hasn't got an Orienteering Club, then why not set up your own University Orienteering club or group?
Support and advice are available, simply contact the National Office. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
