What is Orienteering


Cancellation of LEI Orienteering Events and Activities

Following on from the advice given by the Government and their scientific advisers LEI is cancelling all events and activities until further notice.
We hope to be back in the late summer/early autumn with a bumper programme of events.

British Orienteering announced on March 17th that all orienteering activities in the UK have to be suspended.  See BO news posts for  updates once the Covid-19 crisis is over.

Junior Team Championship

Yvette Baker Troph Heat  – The Outwoods, Loughborough
Sunday 29th March

We are now looking for juniors to register for the Yvette Baker Trophy (YBT) heats on the 29th March at The Outwoods. The YBT is an annual inter-club competition for juniors, who compete in courses appropriate for their age and ability from yellow through to green, with points awarded depending on their finishing position.  In order to have the best chance of making it to the final we need as many of our LEI juniors as possible to run!   The YBT heat runs parallel to the East Midlands League fixture, so the format of the event will be as usual.
