Registration for World Orienteering Day 2020 is open

During 13-19 May 2020, any activity held can be registered as a World Orienteering Day event.

It is time to start the work towards World Orienteering Day 2020.

IOF’s vision is that orienteering is the most attractive adventure-based sport for all ages and the mission is to promote the global growth of orienteering and develop competitive and recreational orienteering.

World Orienteering Day has been successful from the start and the final numbers of participants for WOD 2019 landed at 398 712 participating in one of the 2216 events organised in 85 different countries and territories.

The goal for World Orienteering Day 2020 is 500 000 participants in 90 countries and territories. Together we can reach this goal.

But we all need to contribute!
