It is 10 years this year since the University of Bristol Orienteering Club was re-formed in 2007.
To celebrate we have decided to organise a special weekend of orienteering and more just before the start of term with the aim of bringing current and former members together.
The weekend is the 16-17th September at the beginning of Freshers Week just before the new academic year.
We kick things off on Saturday with a 2x2 Sprint Relay around the University Precinct and surrounding streets. This will see runners racing head-to-head and trying to keep their own as they navigate through the University's buildings and gardens.
Saturday night sees a meal for members and alumni aboard the Grain Barge in the Floating Harbour followed by drinks at who-knows-where.
On Sunday one of our members is organising a race on behalf of Bristol Orienteering Klub in Ashton Court, just across the Suspension Bridge from the city. It is a 'score' format where competitors have no set route to follow but must reach as many checkpoints as possible within the 45 minute time limit.
Details can be found on our UBOC @ 10 page.
