Edinburgh University Orienteering Club invites you to its annual festival of orienteering in the heart of Scotland’s capital. The weekend includes a sprint race on Edinburgh University’s King’s Buildings campus on Friday evening, a city race on Saturday, a race on the picturesque Arthur’s Seat on Sunday, and of course the traditional ceilidh Saturday night.

This year there will also be an indoor orienteering race around the corridors of the Edinburgh University buildings. This will be on Friday evening, adjacent to the sprint in King’s Buildings, and you will receive an entry for this with your Fight With The Night entry.

All of the orienteering is organised by university students, and the event is known for combining high quality orienteering with the beautiful scenery of the Edinburgh old town, with a healthy addition of craic thrown in for good measure.

It is the perfect opportunity to visit the many sights of Edinburgh while also getting high quality racing. The event regularly attracts a strong foreign contingent, and the social aspect makes it ideal for other university orienteering clubs to integrate together.

While the quality of the orienteering is high, this event caters for all abilities, and as a University Club, beginners are more than encouraged to join in. Should you need any help selecting a course for your beginners, feel free to get in contact and our team will be happy to assist in the process.

We look forward to seeing you in January!
