What's On

South Yorkshire Orienteers organises a range of orienteering events throughout the year. The table below lists all of the confirmed upcoming events.

We also have a calendar of events for the next six months that can be downloaded here or picked up at an event.

Some of the events SYO organises are part of an orienteering league. Each event will have details of any league it is in, but the most common leagues are the Yorkshire Urban League, the Yorkshire Night League and the Yorkshire Orienteering Superleague. Flyers for some of these leagues can be found in the League Flyers section of this page.
