Mawbray dunes

Come and have a go at orienteering at one of our friendly Thursday evening events. Next event is at Mosser (a few miles south of Cockermouth) on the 30th of July.  Active fun for all the family - courses suitable for everyone.

See the Events page for more details of these events and lots more - see you there!

Fantastic news - Charlotte Watson of EUOC & WCOC has been selected to represent GB at the World Orienteering Championships this summer in Scotland. Go Charlotte, go GB!


Grab a couple of friends and book your place to run in the annual "Parish Relays", to be held at Westlakes Science park on Thursday 16th July.  Great fun and very sociable! Let Roger Jackson know you are coming so you don't miss out...

Don't forget 50p for a drink and biscuit afterwards.

Barf - the Bishop

Hopefully there won't be a control by the Bishop!  Come and run in the fells and forest around Whinlatter this Thursday - courses suitable for everyone, and a good weather forecast too - what more could you want...
