How to join

To get the most out of your membership and the orienteering community we recommend that you join your local club (and their Association) as well as British Orienteering.

Most clubs organise training opportunities and social activities for their members so it is a great way to improve your orienteering skills and make new friends. You can find details of your nearest Club by using the search facility.

However, if you would prefer to just become a member of British Orienteering, simply select BOF when you are asked to choose a Club and Association to join.

PLEASE NOTE: British Orienteering Membership runs for the calendar year.
