UNO is New Hampshire's Orienteering Club
In orienteering, you use a map and compass to navigate a course through unfamiliar terrain. People of all ages enjoy orienteering as a leisurely walk in the woods, a competitive cross-country race, and everything in between.
Up North Orienteers is a dynamic and friendly orienteering club. We are noted for welcoming newcomers. Our goal is to foster and promote orienteering as a recreational and competitive sport.
We offer a full schedule of orienteering in New Hampshire. Our event season runs April to October, with a break in the summer. We have occasional winter events. Our schedule is dominated by informal local meets which are designed for beginners and casual orienteers, but challenging enough for competitive orienteers.
Orienteering is an inexpensive activity everyone can enjoy, regardless of age or experience. Our local events begin at just $5 per map.
Our events are held across the state. We always offer instruction for beginners, or those needing a refresher course. Teaching and training is part of our purpose.
If you are looking for a new adventure which mixes the great outdoors with a bit of a scavenger hunt, orienteering is for you. If you already enjoy hiking, trail running, geocaching, adventure racing, or just leisurely walks in the woods, come and see what orienteering is all about.
We have started an occasional e-newsletter which will consist of updates on UNO's event calendar, requests for volunteers, alerts on impromptu training sessions, and other orienteering related info. If you would like to subscribe, enter your email here. Of course, you can unsubscribe at anytime.
