Across the year ShUOC runs a set of trips. Alongside weekends away for competitions for BUCS and Fell Relays, other trips are held to let members train and run in places outside of Sheffield, incorporating a lot of socialising of course!
Trips held over the last few years...
Freshers Weekend -
Hosted in the Lake District during the autumn, this is a great chance to practice those navigation skills in technical terrain, and get up running across some of the most beautiful hills in the country!!
Wales Weekend -
In 2023 the Wales trip was based in the beautiful Ogden Valley, with complex orienteering training on the sandunes of Anglesea, and a fell running up Tryfan and the Glyders. This trip takes place in the 2nd Semester.
Trip Abroad -
Each summer, ShUOC tries to get away to a competition abroad, and incorporate training and a bit of sightseeing in too! In 2023, ShUOC headed over to beautiful Finland to take part in the infamous orienteering relay Jukola. Training in Finnish forests in the days before helped them prepare, and trips to Helsinki and a trip on the ferry over to Stockholm, Sweden, gave some great opportunities to soak up the local sights.
