Summer Orienteering
LVO’s activities take a short break during July but orienteering does not stop. See Susan’s post about the hubs. There are permanent orienteering courses throughout the UK and the south of Ireland. There are also some events during the summer throughout the UK. Best wishes to those on orienteering travels – be it the Swedish O-Ringen, the English Lakes 5-day, or the European Youth Orienteering Championships (EYOC). The WEE series returns on the 1st of August. Have a good summer!
