Orienteering is an outdoor activity that is suitable for people of all ages. As a group or a family or solo, it is a great way of exploring the Scottish countryside.

WOC 2024 Legacy Project Consultation

The Sprint World Orienteering Championships is coming to Edinburgh in July 2024!

Although it is still over 2 years away we are keen to ensure that we make the most of the opportunity from WOC to promote and develop our sport in Scotland. That means that we need to start putting some project plans in place now. The SOA staff team has come up with some proposals which we hope that clubs will want to buy into, and to that end we would like to get your feedback on them.

**** Don’t forget to give us your feedback by completing the survey by Mon 17th Jan! ****

2022 Inter-Clubs Kicks Off

The 2022 Scottish Inter-Club Championship kicked off on Sunday, with a regional event at Cambus o’May, Ballater, which was organised by MAROC.

Scottish Orienteering Championships 2019

This year’s SICC has a very different format to previous years, with results from the entire season, over a variety of formats, being tallied to produce the champion club, rather than from a single championship event.

Host club MAROC got their campaign off to an excellent start, with their competitors winning five of the seven classes, and they notched a most impressive 22409 points for the event. Neighbours GRAMP were also prominent, with Pete Lawrence’s win on the Green course garnering the most points of any athlete on the day.

Moravian, Interlopers and EUOC were also amongst the points, while the remaining clubs will take their chance to open their account at the EUOC Big Weekend in two weeks time.

Event results are on the MAROC website and championship standings after the first event are here.

SICC Notes

The 2022 Scottish Inter-Club Championships kicks off this weekend with the first event, at Cambus o’May, Ballater, which will be hosted by MAROC.

The Inter-Club Championship takes on a vastly different look this year, with all five individual championship events (Long, Middle, Sprint, Night and Score) counting towards the total, as well as results from the Compass Point Scottish Orienteering League, the BTO Solicitors Scottish Urban Orienteering League, and regional events from around Scotland.

A briefing note has been prepared, giving more background on how the championships will operate, how scores are calculated and which clubs have been assigned to the “Large” and “Small” categories for 2022.

Good luck to all participants and all clubs – it promises to be an epic season of orienteering!

Inter Club Championships 2022

As we’ve previously indicated we’re going to make a change to the inter club championships in 2022. Currently it is awarded to the club with the most points scored at the Scottish Individual Championships and it seems that most competitors are blissfully unaware of it.

We are keen to introduce a competition that encourages more participation at a range of events across Scotland, provides more motivation for juniors and engenders more club spirit. As ever there are numerous ways that we could do this (and even more opinions) but we have landed on a club league system that we will try in 2022, and review again for 2023 based on lessons learned.
