Welcome to the Cambridge University Orienteering Club (CUOC) website.
If you're looking for a list of upcoming training sessions and races - see the calendar. Beginners always welcome.
For more information about the sport and the club see the about section or email the captain with any questions.
Congratulations to anyone who is coming to Cambridge next year!
Every year CUOC welcomes new Cambridge students, from absolute beginner to international athletes, and we'd love you to join us.
Orienteering is a naturally socially distanced sport and we have been working hard to deliver a complete training program next year with orienteering races having already starting around the country! There's even a rumor about a new kit for 2021 too.
If you're thinking of joining the club or want to know more about orienteering, please get in touch - email the captains with any questions or just to say hi (captain at cuoc.org.uk).
CUOC are absolutely delighted to announce that our Captain and email-writer-in-chief Fiona has been named as the first ever Cambridge Sports Person of the Year. There really wasn't much of a question after a stunningly successful 2019 with BUCS, JK and JWOC golds, so we congratulate Fiona on the well-deserved accolade. This award will surely to persuade Fiona that Cambridge is the place to stay in 2021 (would she really turn her back on the flat, featureless abyss that is the Fens??!). It's hard to imagine how she's going to top last year, so we await the title defence with bated breath!
Read more on the Sports Centre website here. Please ignore the questionable decision to use a photo in which Fiona is competing on some sort of rubberised oval string-course, it's a good read otherwise.
It is with great regret that we have to inform you that the BUCS Orienteering Championships have been cancelled, following the temporary suspension of all BUCS activity in their latest policy on Covid19 (statement found here). Although this suspension is currently until 1st April, we expect to see many further cancellations over the rest of the season. With this in mind, we have had to make the decision to cancel rather than postpone the championships, as there is too much uncertainty over the future. We are deeply sorry for those of you who were looking forward to the weekend (as were we), but we believe it is the right decision in this situation for the health and safety of all involved.
All participants should have received an email regarding refunds. Helpers will also be personally informed.
We are sorry to have to take this action and hope you all stay fit and healthy over the coming weeks.
