World Orienteering Day Week Has Started Today!

Wednesday 15 May - Tuesday 21 May 2019

Today is the start of World Orienteering Week and sees thousands of orienteering events taking place across the world!

Today and throughout the week it would be great if you could help us to generate some momentum throughout the day via social media using #WorldOrienteeringDay and mentioning British Orienteering or @GBROrienteering

The events are taking place in cities, parks, forests and in school yards and people of all ages are encouraged to take part. Orienteering is a go-to sport for all ages and fitness abilities.

In the UK, orienteering events are taking place throughout today and throughout the week. 
Local orienteering clubs across the country are encouraging newcomers to “have a go!” and try the sport of orienteering. Orienteering clubs are encouraging all those people who have already tried orienteering maybe in their school years to come along and have a go. Likewise, these events are a great way to find out more about the sport with the opportunity to take part in simple navigation.

The aim is to get as many people orienteering here in the UK and across the world and help establish an “Official International Orienteering Federation Record” for the participation in World Orienteering Day.
