Other 18/01/2015 The current NGOC website has been in use now for at least a couple of years. Whilst it seems, from casual comment and feedback, to meet most people’s needs for information about the club and our activities, we would welcome ideas on how we can improve it, make it more useful, and perhaps use it more effectively to support our wider communications through ‘social media’ etc. Please let us have your ideas via webmaster@ngoc.org.uk

Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure activity in which competitors run, jog, or simply walk around a course using a map and sometimes a compass in order to navigate between control points. It provides both physical and mental challenges for all, from small children and families, to runners and adventure racers, and to older people looking for exercise and mental stimulation in the fresh air.

North Gloucestershire Orienteering Club holds 20-30 events each year in Cheltenham and Gloucester, the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean. We provide courses for novices and experts, 10 year olds and 70 year olds, runners and walkers; you can choose a course as long and as navigationally challenging as you wish, and can be as competitive as you would like to be. Everyone is welcome to try the sport at one of our events, and help is always available for newcomers. You do not need to be a member, there is no need to pre-book, and the entry fees are modest.

We have over 100 members, and although the club is based in Gloucestershire, we also attract members from the fringes of neighbouring counties.

If you would like to read more about orienteering, visit our Getting Started page, or go to the British Orienteering website, which has a wealth of information about this exciting sport.

For more details about the club, contact our membership secretary, Simon Denman.
