  • Colour Standards (again!) - May I wish everyone a Happy (and safe!) New Year. The Colour Standards table has been reset for the incoming year. That means that the 2019 record has been removed as it falls outside the retrospective 1-year window used for calculating the standards. The incoming year's events have been added (all 2 of them!) and hopefully some semblence of order will be returning to the fixture list so that you can build your standard up again (there's a NY resolution for you - attend every colour event in the year!).

  • Covid Cup Final Scores - The Covid Cup is the replacement, in these exceptional times, for the Spring Cup and Autumn Trophy and is based on Spring Cup 1 at Parkanaur, Autumn Trophy 1 at Divis and Autumn Trophy 2 at Donard, using place points and taking the best 2 results out of the three. The results can be found at "Resources>LVO Public Folders>Club Colour Series". Congratulations to all who kept going through the year and especially to those who contributed their time and effort to putting on the events. Happy Christmas! Read More ...
  • hCOW2020 Champion(s) - The hCOW results, following last Saturday's Donard event, have been computed. It's congratulations to Harry Bell and Colin Smith who share the consistency title. My praise for the senior Pruzinas in my last post seems to have been the kiss of death for Mark (have a look at Routegadget!) but at least he can take satisfaction from leading the place point standings, whatever way you want to look at them. I've still a bit of thinking to do about handicap management so the 2021 series will be a clean start - all we need now are fixtures! Read More ...
  • OCO Festive Frolic - incorporating the inaugural OCO O-Cross. No socks or hankies, but real Orienteering as you know and love it. . What better can there be! Details are being finalised, and hopefully Stormont won't interfere, but save the date and watch this page for further info coming soon! Read More ...


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 Newry to Newcastle to Ballymena as well as three satellite hubs for newcomers based in Craigavon, Tollymore and Belfast. You are welcome to join us at any of our club or hub 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.
