WelcomeWelcome to Lagan Valley Orienteers. The club’s origins go back to the beginning of the 70s and the early days of Orienteering in the Province. Now our membership stretches from Newcastle to Ballyclare. You are welcome to join us at any of our events. Each event has courses suitable for abilities from junior beginner to senior elite. Our events are generally on Saturdays but during the summer and early winter we hold events on Wednesday evenings.

  • Calling all happy campers - For anyone travelling to Tollymore from the north please be aware that the Dundrum to Maghera road (i.e. the route signposted to Tollymore from south of Dundrum) is closed due to roadworks and the diversion is along small country roads.  Anyone with a bulky vehicle (e.g. campervan, MOO or, like me, a caravan) would be advised to travel via Castlewellan.

  • Help FERMO – NI Sprint and Middle Distance Championships - The hard working team at FERMO will really appreciate your letting them know you are competing at the NI Sprint and Middle Distance Championships this Saturday, 12th May. A post on their website http://fermoblog.wordpress.com/2018/04/30/ni-sprint-and-middle-distance-championships/ explains how to contact them and what they would like to know (see the "Registration" section). If you can't commit yourself at this stage don't let this stop you competing on Saturday. You will be welcome. All the best for your race. The NIOA AGM takes place between the two races.
