Orienteering is an exciting and challenging outdoor sport that exercises both mind and body.
The aim is to navigate between control points marked on a map; as a competitive sport the challenge is to complete the course in the quickest time choosing your own best route; as a recreational activity it does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run or walk making progress at your own pace on the courses planned to suit you.
Fell Running is the exciting sport of running over hills and off-road terrain. It has the same pace and excitement of orienteering, but with more physical pain and less confused head-scratching when you get lost!
City, forest or moor, not to mention the rain, snow, wind and sunshine, orienteering and fell running can prove to be a challenge for your mind and muscles…
We run regular training in and around Leeds on Thursday at 6.30pm. We travel to local club events on Wednesday evenings and at weekends. This is a mixture of navigation and fitness training. We attend Fell Races at weekends and organise regular group runs. Our sessions cater for everyone from those still getting to grips with the sport to elite athletes (or so we like to think).
Become a member for just £15. Membership runs for one academic year and all our training is FREE to members!
