Route to Success

Orienteering is an international sport, can take you all the way from Sheffield to Scotland, and on to Sweden. You can orienteer individually, for your club, region, or even for your country... the world really is your oyster!

Why not have a look at our progression guide to see where you can get to?

Junior of the Month

Helping you to get to know your team-mates better! Each month, we will ask one of our juniors a few questions, and post their responses here.
