Following on from the success of the World Sprint Championships in Denmark the next World Sprint Championships are being held in Edinburgh in July 2024. This offers a unique opportunity to promote orienteering to a wider audience and attract more people to take part in orienteering across the UK.
With the excitement of the sprint format proving particularly attractive to young people. The staging of the world championships has the potential to have a substantial impact on orienteering activity across the country.
The sport needs to grasp this potential and achieve significant growth in numbers enjoying orienteering as an exciting sport for all, young people in particular.
We are seeking a motivated individual to create a 2 year delivery plan to maximise this opportunity for the sport of orienteering.
