West Cumberland Orienteering Club is based in the Western half of the English Lake District. We host events on a weekly basis from informal Thursday nights to district or regional events held at weekends. Everyone is welcome to try the sport.
This year's Allerdale Chase (Long O) will be on Sunday 24th June, starting from "Leaps" (near Kirkland). Courses from 4km to 16km - choose your challenge. Pre-enter via SiEntries by Tuesday 19 June (very limited EOD).

In case you had missed it, the Allerdale Bike Challenge is back again - and like last year there will be an overall league combining results from the ABC events and the corresponding WCOC Thursday evening events (our clever stastisticians will work it out).

FOR SALE Whinlatter Discovery Pass, worth £45. The Forestry Commission has kindly given NWJS (WCOC) juniors a Discovery Pass to support their fundraising actvities. The Pass entitles the holder to free parking (for up to two cars) at Whinlatter plus 10% off in the cafe, shop and off Christmas trees. Various discounts off other national retailers and courses at Whinlatter.
Many thanks to the team for today's galoppen in the sunshine around the lovely Wythop Valley. In particular Ange for organising, Scott for planning and John for controlling. Results now posted.
Thanks also to everyone who supported the Juniors by buying refreshments - they will definitely be repeating the "bring-your-own-mug" experiment to cut down on plastic waste.
