Forest League Series Info
A local event open to all, beginner or experienced orienteer, young or old and there are colour-coded courses suitable for all.
We have six of these events a year and together they form the Forest League (QOFL). The series starts in the Autumn and continues at approximately one event per month until the spring.
Fixture list & preview

Suitable for all ages and abilities.

Colour coded courses explained (with thanks to Berkshire OC)
You need to join a recognised orienteering club once you have participated at three or more events. Participation as a non-member after three events invalidates that event's liability insurance. Read about joining QO here.
