Welcome to Lagan Valley Orienteers

Announcing October Outdoors. 4 weeks of adventurous orienteering challenges across 3 boroughs supported by The Outdoor Partnership NI. 

What is October Outdoors? October Outdoors is a FREE exciting adventure challenge in your council area. This is DIY Orienteering – all you need is your phone, an orienteering map and a sense of adventure! There will be a new challenge and a new place to explore every week for the month of October!

Who is it for? This challenge is suitable for all levels – families, runners, cyclists, dog walkers, youth groups – you name it! This is the perfect socially distanced activity with no touch points and plenty of fresh air.

When? The dates and venues are listed below provisionally. Shortly they will be added to the main fixture list.
