Rushmere Country Park.

SOUTH MIDLANDS ORIENTEERING CLUB

Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. Orienteering uses a specially drawn map to navigate between control points in a set order. It's enjoyed by young and old alike with courses for different abilities and is a great way to enjoy the countryside whilst testing both fitness and brains. You can run, jog or walk, you decide your own pace. Orienteering can take place anywhere from remote forest and countryside to parks, suburban estates and even city centres. However the most challenging orienteering takes place in remote areas which have demanding terrain and fewer paths.

About the club

South Midlands Orienteering Club was founded in 1986 and has over 100 members living mostly in the Milton Keynes / Bedford / Northampton / Luton area of the United Kingdom. The Club is affiliated to British Orienteering and the East Anglian Orienteering Association.
