About BOK

Orienteering is an exciting and challenging outdoor sport enjoyed by people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. It involves competitive navigation using a map and compass - competitors choose their own route between control points marked on the map. Bristol Orienteering Klub (BOK), one of the largest and most successful clubs in the United Kingdom, draws its members from Bristol and the surrounding area (including South Gloucestershire, Bath and North Somerset). We organise local orienteering events and our members take part in events all over the country. We always welcome new members - detailed information about the club and joining us can be found on the Klub page. If you would like to sample the sport at your own convenience, why not try one of the local permanent courses - to be found at Ashton Court, Blaise Castle, Leigh Woods and Bradley Stoke?
