World Orienteering Championships 2022 - appointed as Event Director

The Steering Group for the Sprint World Orienteering Championships 2022 is pleased to announce that Paul McGreal has been appointed as Event Director.

Paul is well known to many as the Event Director who helped stage the successful World Orienteering Championships in 2015. Paul will fit in this part-time role with his responsibilities managing Durty Events, a company staging triathlons and adventure races and more recently associated with the Keswick Mountain Festival.

Acting Event Director Colin Matheson, who led the successful bid to stage the Championships, will take on the Assistant Event Director position alongside his current role working as Events Manager for the Scottish Orienteering Association and as a key member of the team delivering the popular Scottish 6 Days Orienteering event.

Paul, a member of Roxburgh Reivers Orienteering Club, was one of over 25 potential candidates who applied for this exciting and potentially challenging role.
