World Orienteering Day 11 May 2016

Posted on | March 23, 2016 | Category: News

On Wednesday May 11th 2016, at as many locations as possible, we would love to see people of all ages taking part in some sort of Orienteering event. Clubs from all over the world can make a fantastic contribution that benefits both education at school and development of the sport.

The International Orienteering Federation’s goals regarding the organisation of this annual event are as follows:

-Increasing the visibility and accessibility of orienteering to young people.

-Increasing the number of participants both in the schools’ activities, as well and in the clubs’ activities in all countries of National Federations, and to get more new countries to take part in orienteering.

-Helping teachers to implement orienteering in a fun and educational way.

For more information, you can check out the website by clicking here. It will be the central hub for the project, where participants can register their activities, upload maps, download promotional material and material for their events, and much more.

Contact persons for the project are:

Göran Andersson: goran.andersson.rf(at)
