North West Orienteering Association clubs and their members were delighted to welcome orienteers, families and friends to the Southern Lake District in April 2015 for the 49th JK International Festival of Orienteering.
The JK is the UK's premier annual multi-day competition, attracting orienteers from around the world.
The event took place because of the help and support received from many landowners, organisations, companies, orienteering clubs and their members. We thank them all.
The weekend comprised 4 days of top-class competition:
Friday 3 April
Day 1: Sprint (WRE) & TempO at Lancaster University
Saturday 4 April
Day 2: Individual Race (WRE), Ulpha Park and Barrow Fell & Pre-O at Haverigg Dunes
