NWO organises regular events and activities, including cross-country, score and night events. All of these are suitable for beginners who want to try orienteering.

There will be a series of urban-based informal events during the light evenings of spring and summer. The urban series for 2020 are do-it-yourself solo courses that can be followed at any time of day.

For more information about NWO events contact the organiser, if named, or the NWO Fixtures Secretary

For some events we ask that you let the organiser know if you plan to come. This is not a commitment but it helps the organiser to estimate the number of maps required.

There are many events organised by other clubs that are within reach of North Wiltshire. See the British Orienteering website which provides a national list of fixtures.

Please note that if you have participated in three orienteering events/activities and not joined an orienteering club that is a member of British Orienteering then you are not covered by our public liability insurance.
