About: I am a fourth year at van Mildert studying Geography. I started orienteering when I was in primary school. I am currently a member of Bristol Orienteerin Klub (BOK) and have been part of the South West Junior Squad.
About: I am a third year at Grey College studying Combined Honours in Social Sciences in Geography and Archaelogy. I started orienteering in February (2015) at BUCS! But I come from a background of competition in cross country and track and field.
About: I'm a second year studying Natural Sciences (Chemistry and Physics) at Hild Bede, I started orienteering five years ago with my local club in Cambridgeshire. I realised two years ago that you do better if you run rather than walk. Last year I learnt how to read a map, that helped too.
About: I'm a second year at St Aidan's College studying Earth Sciences, I started orienteering through my parents literally as soon as I could walk and have competed for England on a couple of occasions. Orienteering takes you so many places and is a great sport for travelling and meeting new people which is why I enjoy it so much.
About: Hey I'm Fran (St Mary's), I came to orienteering through a running background aged 11. My biggest achievement is beating Julie (aka beast) in a relay or 2nd at the British Middles 2015. My favourite discipline is the sprint because it gives me less chance of getting lost. I also like banter starts at relays (first to the start kite).
About: I am a fourth year at Stephenson College studying BSc Accounting on the KPMG bespoke school leaver programme. I have been an orienteer all my life and have represented Great Britain. For me, the sport allows you to use your brain and read a map while running which keeps you interested throughout - we all know running can be boring at times! Plus you can make friends for life through the sport!
About: I'm a second year engineer at Hild Bede and I began orienteering when I came to Durham. I'd taken up running in the August but had done quite a bit of map reading through scouts and hill walking before and really enjoyed my first year of orienteering!
