Welcome to RAF Orienteering Association

RAFO Header

RAF Orienteering (RAFO) provides opportunities for participation, training and competition for all orienteers regardless of ability from beginner to through recreational and masters (over 35s) to the elite performance level for all forms of orienteering be it classic, urban, sprint and night – we’ve even had the odd foray into mountain bike orienteering. Recent trips have included the wilds of New Zealand and the th e intricate canals and alleys of Venice.

No matter your ability or experience you are more than welcome to join in the fun that orienteering (or cunning running as it is sometimes known). Oh and you don't have to go through any un-necessary selection processes to take part either. Membership to serving personnel is FREE! Moreover, we have a number of ex-RAF Members in the Club.
