Annual Punt Orienteering is based on a punt moving on the River Cam with runners leaving the punt to run short courses before meeting up with their punt again.
Open to all - No punting or even running experience required (you can opt out of punting (e.g. just be punted) or running).
Just turn up to join in as ad hoc team will be formed on the night (or you can create a team of 6/7 in advance if you prefer).
