  • Crawfordsburn hCOW table available - Go to "Resources>OneDrive Public>hCOW>hCOW2022" to see the scores and handicap adjustments arising from WEE4. Amongst the 3 times scorers it's now Billy Reed leading with 20 points, then Anastasia Mahlych with 26 and, keeping it in the family, Chloe Reed with 30. Following next week's event there will be a series table showing your scores to date and the variation in your handicap allowing you to look back on your performances (and hopefully learn from them!).

  • Crawfordsburn WEE Wednesday 2th May - As an experiment, we are leaving online entries open until the night of the event. So, if you would like a run *please* enter now at https://www.sientries.co.uk/event.php?elid=Y&event_id=9905. It makes life an awful lot simpler for the Organiser to just hand out a dibber, rather than gather up all the safety and contact information and laboriously enter it onto the computer. Much faster for those who are pre-entered and just collecting a dibber too. If you are pre-entered and have your own dibber, just go straight to the Start in front of the Woodlands cafรฉ. Other details see https://lvo.org.uk/allfixtures/wee4-belfast-park-tbc/ See you… Read More ...

WelcomeWelcome to Lagan Valley Orienteers. The clubโ€™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. You can walk, jog or run.
