About Us

This site has been developed by British Orienteering in consultation with clubs, to make Permanent and Virtual Orienteering courses easily accessible.

British Orienteering is the National Governing Body for the sport of orienteering in the United Kingdom. We are a not-for-profit organisation; all our income is invested in developing orienteering throughout the UK from grassroots through to international competition.

We believe orienteering is the most rewarding adventure sport. It is a physical and mental challenge that takes us into beautiful landscapes, and we want to share it with people of all ages and abilities.

With over 50 years of rich history, orienteering in the UK is a grassroots sport run by volunteers, with a strong club network and vibrant event calendar.
