Saturday Events

Saturday Events

We run a series of low key events, roughly once a month, on Saturdays between September and July.

These events are aimed at children, families, beginners and improvers of all ages. More experienced orienteers are also welcome to attend.

We generally have White and Yellow courses (suitable for children and those who have never Orienteered before) and Orange, Light Green and Short Blue courses (which provide varying course lengths for beginners all the way up to more experienced runners)

Help for beginners is always on hand, so please do feel free to turn up to any of the our events.

If you have any questions, or need any more information, please feel free to email fixtures@bko.org.uk

Entries

Registration is normally open from 10am until 11am, and starts from 10:30am until 11:30. There is no need to pre-enter, just turn up, fill in an Entry Form, pay and run. To save time at registration you can download the BKO Event Entry Form here, fill it in, print it, and bring it with you to the event (the form has space for up to 5 participants).

For larger groups (e.g. Schools), please fill in a BKO Group Entry Form and email this a week in advance of the event to results@bko.org.uk, this will save a lot of time at registration and ensure that we have enough maps printed for your group.

Youth League

All Saturday series events will also be part of the BKO Youth League. There is no extra charge for this, simply sign up with your age details to gain youth league points. If you are running on behalf of a school, also mention this on the Entry Form to earn points for your school. For more information see our Youth League page.
