WM Urban League


Ticking clock
Time is running out!

Did you know that all Event Officials - Organiser, Planner, and Controller must have attended an Event Safety & Welfare Workshop by 1st January 2017. This is to both assure external bodies and meet British Orienteering Insurance requirements.

This requirement is designed to protect all Event Officials and all competitors. It is also linked to the important task of completing fully the Risk Assessment and displaying it prominently at Events, together with information regarding First Aid & Hospital/A&E/Walk-In availability and locations.

Are  you ready for 2017?
Are there any events in the Midlands today?

Some minor events don't make it into the published national list - details of these will be found on the club websites (links on this page)
