Events

There are orienteering events (races/fixtures) all over the UK every week. These are mostly on a Sunday, or a Saturday, although there are sometimes smaller events during the week (especially in the summer). Often there are several events to choose from. Club websites advertise the events that they have organised, but there are several useful websites with all the fixtures information:
