of Orienteering 2014
18th April - 21st April
The Welsh Orienteering Association invites orienteers to visit South Wales in April for the 48th JK International Festival of Orienteering.
"The JK" is Britain's premier annual multi-day competition and regularly attracts competitors from around the world each Easter. The competition comprises a Sprint race on Good Friday, a two-day individual competition on Easter Saturday/Sunday and a three-person Relay on Easter Monday. Each can be entered separately if desired.
TrailO events are also offered on Days 1 and 3.
There will be a programme of training days and events in the week leading up to the Easter weekend where the 4 days of orienteering start as usual with the Sprint on Good Friday. This will be at Swansea University and Singleton Park. Swansea Bay Orienteering Club will be taking the lead.
Days 2 and 3 will share an assembly area and parking and both days have been approved by the IOF as World Ranking Events.
The areas are Merthyr Common and Llangynidir. South Wales Orienteering Club is hosting Day 2 and Leicestershire Orienteering Club leads on Day 3.
Finally for Day 4, the Relays are being held on Pwll Du and Bristol Orienteering Klub are leading that day.
