Take Part

WOC 2022 will also offer a series of international events for juniors, masters and non-elites. This will use the same areas as WOC whereever possible, and will feature an awayday to a major tourist destination outside Edinburgh. This 5-Day event is fully integrated with WOC 2022, and you will also have the opportunity to run the actual WOC courses. All race venues will be accessible by public transport and/or transport offered by the organisers.

The open races are an integrated part of the organisation and staging of WOC 2022 and we welcome clubs, families and individuals from around the world, both to support their national teams and to enjoy their own races in some outstanding locations. There will be a full range of courses for all ages (normal competitive classes from 10-85) with courses also suitable for novices and beginners who want to give orienteering a try. If possible we will try and incorporate some Trail O (Pre O) suitable for able bodied and paralympic competitors.
