Orienteering is a competitive running sport with a map : decide the quickest route to reach a series of control points around an event course.
London Orienteering Klubb
LOK draws its members from the north and south side of the River Thames and to the west of the Lea Valley. It competes against other clubs and hosts local and regional races. Our runners are of all ages, from beginners to national standard athletes. New members are most welcome and training can be given. The sport is of Swedish origin, and we have used the Swedish spelling in our name.
