CUOC is the orienteering club for members of the University of Cambridge. We normally have around 30 members of varying abilities. We train in Cambridge during the week and go to races at the weekend. We also organise a number of socials each term and several training camps throughout the year.
The main club activities are training and racing. There are normally multiple training sessions every week, with technical training every Wednesday, circuits training (currently) on Fridays, and sometimes other physical trainings. We go on an annual Training Tour at the end of Michaelmas term, to an exciting wild area somewhere in the UK, and there are often extra training trips abroad during the other holidays. The main races of the year are BUCS, the Varsity Match and the JK Festival, all of which happen in Lent Term or the Easter Holidays. More information about our activites can be found below:
