The Compass Sport Cup is the British Clubs Orienteering Championships started by CompassSport Founder Ned Paul in 1982. Clubs are categorised into small (Trophy - 13 scorers) and large (Cup - 25 scorers) clubs. The competition consists of an initial round in spring and a Final round in the autumn. Prizes are provided for by CompassSport. The Competition is administrated by a Volunteer Co-ordinator on behalf of CompassSport and the Orienteering Clubs of the UK for which the competition was set up to serve.

Peter Guillaume, Compass Sport Cup Coordinator, says: “It is pleasing to see that the Final has a good entry with Forth Valley Orienteers making the long journey to defend their Cup title against Bristol Orienteering Klub who have a strong team and South Yorkshire Orienteers. Other clubs have strong teams, so the results may throw up some surprises.
Peter added: “In the Trophy Interlopers Orienteering Club has also made the long journey from Scotland. With East Pennine Orienteering Club and Clydeside Orienteers not at the Final, there will be new teams on the Trophy podium.”

British Orienteering would like to say a big thank you to all the volunteers involved especially to the Organiser: Nicholas Maxwell, Planner: Tom Lillicrap and Controller: Roger Hargreaves who have all worked hard and continue to do so with their final preparations for this weekend’s competition. A big thank you also must go to Peter Guillaume, Compass Sport Cup Coordinator and to Compass Sport.

British Orienteering would also like to wish all the orienteering clubs and members attending this competition a safe journey as they travel to compete and would like to wish everyone taking part all the best as they compete in a great day of orienteering.
