Warning: We have a problem with our event management system that we are working to resolve. Unfortunately we are unable to show past events on some pages until this issue is resolved.

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.

Club Night

SYO's club night takes place on Wednesday evenings during term time. During the Autumn and Winter club night takes place at High Storrs school 7-8.30pm, although the first few sessions in September will be outdoors to make the most of the fast fading daylight! Each session will contain a mix of physical and technical training. Once per month club night takes place at the SYO local evening event.
