University of Bristol Orienteering and Fell Running Club

Orienteering is a sport for people who enjoy challenge and adventure. The aim is to navigate around a set course using a map as fast as possible. We travel all over the country and even the world, orienteering in forests, over moors and through cities. We've got lots of trips lined up this year - come join us!

Many of our members enjoy fell running as a hobby and as great physical training for orienteering. We support members who want to take part in local fell races, including in the Mendips and South Wales, and provide the option to go for a fell run on our training weekends which take us across the country from Dartmoor to the Lake District.

The club meets up regularly for training, socials and competitions. Our members cover the full range of ability and experience. Everyone is welcome!


We have a free membership which lets you come to our normal weekly training, our socials, and your first weekend event. If you want to come to more weekends, or make use of 15% off at our sponsor, Alpkit Bristol, you will need to get a full membership for £15 per year. You can become a member on the Bristol SU website.
