The club nights, which are led by qualified British Orienteering coaches, are suitable for all ages, abilities and fitness levels and include the following activities:

  • Group runs
  • Circuit training
  • Indoor and outdoor orienteering exercises
  • Problem solving activities

Orienteering is now a major sport in education meeting the developmental needs, both physical and mental, of pupils. It is an important vehicle for delivering the Outdoor Adventurous Activity within the English National PE Curriculum as well as providing the opportunity for cross curricular links with Maths, Geography and Citizenship Studies. Likewise, it offers an exciting multi-dimensional extracurricular activity which is one of the reasons for setting up the club nights.

Orienteering can take place anywhere from remote forest and countryside to urban parks and school playgrounds. It is  great sport for runners, joggers and walkers who want to improve their navigation skills or for anyone who loves the outdoors. Orienteering - the adventure sport for all.

As well as the club nights HALO organises regular orienteering events with courses suitable for beginners throughout the year on local areas, generally on a Saturday but occasionally on a Sunday.  These are shown on the events page of the website.
