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."
Watch the film here.
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.

At the Scottish Orienteering Association (SOA) we need your help – and that of every member from the past four years – to help us raise funds from Gift Aid.
As the SOA is a registered charity, Gift Aid allows us to claim extra funds from HMRC on any donations made to us – including your SOA membership fees – AS LONG AS the person donating the funds completes a declaration that they are a UK tax payer.
Every single declaration completed helps us gain extra funds and, if every adult member does this, we could claim £10,000 which would otherwise just be lost in tax.
Therefore, if you’ve been a member of the SOA in any year since 2015, PLEASE complete the form at this link:
OR download and complete the attached form, before emailing it to email@example.com with the subject “Gift Aid Declaration”:
The deadline for this year’s submissions is the end of December, so please complete this as soon as possible, to ensure we can process your declaration in time.
If you have any questions, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All information you provide will only be used in relation to us claiming for Gift Aid.
I think I’ve made a Gift Aid declaration to the SOA in the past; do I really need to complete this?
If you’ve joined or renewed Scottish membership with British Orienteering, the British Orienteering membership system gives no option to make a Gift Aid declaration to the SOA, so please complete the form now.
If you used SI Entries to join the SOA only, you would have been given the option to make a declaration when joining but – sadly – some people didn’t select this option.
If you’re in ANY doubt please complete the form – we’ll happily receive a second declaration, rather than none at all!
