It's back to the campus of UC Berkeley for a fun, urban variety of orienteering - a great, low-risk introduction for beginners, and a fun and challenging change of pace for the more experienced.

We'll offer four courses this year:

Starts will be 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, with a 2:00 pm course cutoff. We'll have beginners clinics from 10:00 to 11:00 am. As always, we'll meet just below the Campanile (the clocktower) near the middle of campus.

You'll be looking for clues on features, so no punch cards needed for this one - but do bring a pencil. Perhaps we can hit a local restaurant afterwards.


From I-80, take the University Ave. exit. Follow University to its end, and turn left on Oxford St. (at the campus). At the second light, turn right onto Hearst Ave. The Campanile is a 5-minute walk from the gate opposite the intersection of Hearst and Euclid (the first traffic light). Park on city streets where you can.
