Where are you going orienteering this summer?

Fortunately, we are back to more normal conditions after the pandemic and therefore there are plenty of opportunities to go orienteering this summer. If you haven't settled for a specific place to go yet, we have a few suggestions:

Swiss Orienteering Week from July 16 - 22 takes place in continuation of World Orienteering Championships in Flims, Laax in the Swiss Alps.

The event features six races within the week and the terrains are very varied and offer the chance to compete in the same areas as the WOC-athletes did just days before.

World Masters Orienteering Championships in Slovakia from August 12 - 18 gives you the opportunity to compete against the best orienteers in the world in your age group.

WMOC medals will be awarded to the best in Sprint, Middle and Long distance and the races take place around the city of Košice and its surroundings in South-Eastern Slovakia.

The organizers have put effort into offering both an enjoyable race experience and plenty of opportunities for relaxation and leisure activities.
