Welcome to World Orienteering Day 2022

World Orienteering Day is all set to take place from 11 - 17 May 2022.   

The goals of World Orienteering Day are about increasing the visibility and accessibility of orienteering with young people, increasing the number of participants both in schools’ activities, as well as in clubs’ activities in all countries of National Federations across the world.
