The next World Orienteering Day will take place on Wednesday 13 May 2020.
In 2020, between Wednesday 13 May and Tuesday 19 May 2020, any activity held can be registered as a World Orienteering Day event.
The International Orienteering Federation´s goals regarding the organisation of this annual event are as follows:
Visionary course of action
Each club of all national Orienteering Federations gets in touch with at least one school. As teachers might need help to implement orienteering so the lessons are a fun and exciting experience, the IOF is working on providing teaching materials in different languages.

Paul Murgatroyd, Head Coach for Talent, says:
"A truly phenomenal season for GB's juniors, with record breaking achievements at the Junior World Championships in Denmark in July, supported by some further strong performances at both European Youth Orienteering Championships and Junior European Cup in June and September respectively, is shown in a film."

Unfortunately due to unexpected work commitments, scheduled for tomorrow evening (3 December at 7pm), the live Q&A webinar with Peter Hart has been postponed.
Programme lead Peter Brooke commented, “We will be working with Peter to secure a replacement date early in the new year and will publish this in due course. This will feature along with an exciting calendar of sessions to tune into throughout 2020.”
This years programme has so far had over 1600 views across all the sessions and are all available to view on British Orienteering’s YouTube channel.
If you have a session you’d like to see featured in 2020 do get in touch with Peter Brooke on firstname.lastname@example.org and it could feature soon.

The Arena is at Mørk, Østfold about 30 minutes from Moss and 40 minutes from Sarpsborg.
The terrain today is undulating and detailed, with relatively small height differences in the eastern part and some higher hills in the western part. Total height differences about 60 m. Mostly good runnability and medium visibility. In some parts, the ground is covered with relatively high heather. Pine forest on the hilltops and spruce or mixed vegetation on the lower parts.
Wishing the GBR team all the very best as they get set to compete in the Long distance race today!
