Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club

Orienteering EdinburghA series of 6 events in central Edinburgh

Help spread the word about this series of events aimed at attracting those new to orienteering

Fran Loots, Development Manager for the Scottish Orienteering Association (SOA) has asked members of the orienteering clubs local to Edinburgh to help publicise this new venture ORIENTEERING EDINBURGH and writes:

Welcome to Orienteering Edinburgh

This series of 6 events will run weekly - same time, same place - starting Thursday 11th May. Help us to spread the word.

Check out the new website for Orienteering Edinburgh and/or read the event flyer.

We are targeting 18-35 year olds who are active and live, work and study in and around Edinburgh so the events will also have some light touch coaching on hand for newcomers.

Regular orienteers are welcome too. If you can encourage colleagues from your workplaces in and around Edinburgh to get involved, that would be fantastic.

The series will be evaluated to see who it attracts, if this approach works for attracting the 18-35 demographic and what lessons there are for repeating something similar across Scotland and the UK.

Thanks to all the Edinburgh clubs for signing up to the concept and agreeing to work together.
