join up or renew for 2019
A condition of entry to any orienteering event is that you join a recognised orienteering club, after your first three runs. Our event insurance cover depends on this. Please remember your club membership is for calendar years, not orienteering seasons and renew if you haven't done so already.
If you haven't renewed your membership for 2019 and are planning on taking part in next Sunday's Forest League event, be sure to renew by then to take advantage of the £3 discount (£1 for juniors) offered at our events to all current members of British Orienteering
Members also get good discounts on their runs and can take advantage of promotional offers organised by our governing body, including generous discounts on accommodation and orienteering clothing and shoes.
We're very glad to see so many people joining us in the last year.
Non-members & insurance
When you are new to the sport, you may attend three orienteering events or activities before joining. After this point, you need to join (or rejoin) a recognised orienteering club to compete in any event or activity.
Should you not join, your runs will not be covered under British Orienteering's (BOF's) public liability insurance. BOF are clear that the presence of uninsured runners at any one event creates a risk that that event will lose its insurance cover, even if such runners aren't involved in any such incidents that give rise to a claim. Our organisers will understandably be reluctant to take the risk of having uninsured runners taking part.
All new members are allocated to a team which will help run two events per season - to find out which one, please click here. Helping at our events is a great way of meeting of meeting and catching up with other members.
