British Orienteering wants to acknowledge recognise and reward some of the great work being done across the sport of orienteering by our clubs, coaches, mappers and volunteers of all ages.
Who do you think deserves to be congratulated for their particular hardwork and efforts they have given to the sport in 2019?
Orienteers within all of our clubs up and down the country give endless hours of their time to our sport. Often very quietly and behind the scenes and don't make a fuss about what they regularly do. Many orienteers spend hours mapping and planning for a specific club or national event or have put in hard graft over the year and have developed new club initiatives and activities in 2019.
Together let's recognise this fact and put our heads together and nominate the people within your club who you think deserves national recognition for their contributions given to our sport. British Orienteering are looking for nominations from members and clubs.
