EuroCity Festival of Orienteering comes to Harrogate and Knaresborough (15/16 July 23). Orienteers from around the country and Europe will be here to enjoy new urban races in our towns.  In addition, a choice of courses will be available to you to have a go!


There are different courses for different competitors. Anyone wishing to race against their age group should pre-enter by Wednesday 12th using the details on our website.


On the day there will be a choice of 3 courses for newcomers and the Accessible course for wheelchair users.


These are


  1. Short (more manageable and within the school campus so safe for children)
  2. Medium (visits town and Valley Gardens so under 16s need accompanying)
  3. Long (as Medium and longer)

Anyone wishing to join in is welcome to come along to Harrogate Ladies College Sports Hall (access off Duchy Road into the playing field) between 10am and 12am. In the Sports Hall they should go to Enquiries where they will be helped to register and get started.


Lots of fun on the playing field after orienteering. A free Maze O with several courses (ideal for young and old), catering (bring your own plate and mug and enjoy a picnic lunch on the field), prizes galore, and superb viewing opportunities as some of the top orienteers in the country and Europe take on their courses.


No dogs are permitted on this occasion.
