World Orienteering Day 2018 - calling all clubs and schools to get involved

World Orienteering Day has proven itself to be a highly successful event for global orienteering and in 2018 we hope to once again set a new record in participation and reach the vision of 500 000 participants around the world.

2017 was a great success, with more than 288 000 participants in 79 countries all around the world. Register to be a part of World Orienteering Day 2018 and make it even bigger! 

In May 2018, between May 23rd and May 29th, orienteering activities held can be registered as a World Orienteering Day event.

Göran Andersson, Project Coordinator, World Orienteering Day, at the International Orienteering Federation, says:
This is the third World Orienteering Day and it would be great to see British Orienteering clubs and local schools in the UK supporting and backing World Orienteering Day again this year. World Orienteering Day aims to help provide an opportunity especially for local clubs and schools to raise the profile of orienteering with others who would not normally know about or consider taking part in the sport. It is a great way of showcasing what fun orienteering can be within local communities across the world.”

Be part of it!
