WOW! 2021 World Orienteering Day/Week is fast approaching! 19- 25 May 2021 - How are you going to join in?

The aim of the project is to increase the visibility and accessibility of orienteering to young people, increasing the number of participants both in the schools’ activities, as well and in the clubs’ activities in all countries of National Orienteering Federations, helping teachers to implement orienteering in a fun and educational way and to get more new countries to take part in orienteering.

World Orienteering Day 2021 events may be registered and organised in the period May 19 – 25 and September 8 – 14, as the pandemic situation in which the different countries allow.

With the Government restrictions slowly starting to ease across the UK, British Orienteering is supporting World Orienteering on the 19 - 25 May and would like to see as many clubs, schools and members taking part (in line with Government guidelines).

Orienteering is a sport that keeps you fit, challenges the mind, and is lots of fun!

The World Orienteering Day / Week webpage on the British Orienteering website has now been updated and can be found here.  This webpage includes free resources created for schools to download and use.
