UoC Active Running

Introduction to running from UoC Active

Running is one of the simplest forms of exercise. Done correctly it can be of great benefit to both physical and mental health. At UoC Active we thought it would be useful to publish some hints and tips, to encourage both staff and students to get or stay active. Below you'll find a useful resource from us to get you started, from what kit you'll need to how to take your running further once you're ready. You'll also find below a four-week programme to help provide a short plan whether you're a beginner or you're already a runner and would like to improve.

UoC Orienteering

Orienteering activities

Orienteering is a great sport to participate in, combining map reading skills with walking, jogging or running. It’s also a great way to have fun with friends or family navigating your way around a set course.

At Lancaster campus, we have set up an Orienteering trail. Start at the first number, and plot your way around the twenty other permanent signs. To verify you have found all the signs, you need to write down the letters or numbers associated with each sign
