This is an excellent orienteering area, last used at the British Championship Relays in May 2013. It is an area of mature, highly runnable, moderately hilly woodland with a mixture of re-entrants, spurs, gullies, and depressions, and providing a variety of route choice and some fine navigation challenges.

Weekly evening training

Members of the club train on Hampstead Heath every Thursday evening.

Where: Royal Free Hospital Recreation Club (includes changing and shower facilities) in Fleet Road, Hampstead (near corner of Pond Street, London NW3 2QG)
When: 6.30 p.m. for a 6.45 p.m. start, Thursday evenings.

We run for about an hour. The training is primarily just running but can include some orienteering practice. The training is open to all, including non-members and those new to orienteering or who only want a run - just turn up at the Recreation Club.

Note: there will be no training on Thursday 25th of September as it is the first North London Street League event that evening in Stratford.
