We believe orienteering is the most rewarding adventure sport. It is a physical and mental challenge that takes us into beautiful landscapes and can be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities.
With over 50 years of rich history, orienteering in the UK is a grassroots sport run by volunteers, with a strong club network and vibrant event calendar. We have also found success on the world stage most recently with multiple medals at the last Junior World championships.
Thriving Clubs for a New Generation
Clubs are the heart and soul of our sport. We will ensure they have the support to maintain, develop and grow. We will welcome a new generation of orienteers to an inclusive adventure sport in remarkable venues.

The British Orienteering Board of Directors work strategically and is responsible for ensuring British Orienteering delivers its strategic plans. Except for the Chief Executive, all Board members work on a voluntary basis and are non-executive.
A Diversity Action Plan has been drafted to increase diversity and inclusiveness on the Board and across the decision-making infrastructures in orienteering. The draft plan is a working document that has been adopted by the Board in December 2017. Work to improve the plan will continue whilst it is being implemented.
