Bernard Walker2010 Archive

The Jan Kjellstrom International Orienteering Festival, the UK’s premier orienteering carnival, is being held over Easter 2011 (22 – 25 April). It will include 2 World Ranking Events and is being conducted in Ireland in Belfast.  The Irish Orienteering Championships (IOC) will be held on the following weekend 30 Apr – 2 May south of Dublin in the Wicklow Mountains.

This provides competitors with an opportunity for 7 days of orienteering (at least), including 2 x WREs, combined with a visit to Ireland.  The events are easily accessible with Belfast and Dublin less than 2 hours apart.  There will also be training activities for the days before the JK and in the days between the JK and IOC.
