Welcome to Cork Orienteering Club

If you are looking for a healthy, fun outdoor activity then why not try orienteering. Cork Orienteering Club organises and promotes the sport of orienteering in the Cork area, both City and County.

Our events cater for all ages and fitness levels, it does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace. We are always delighted to welcome beginners and families to our events, and we will have someone on hand at each event to show you the ropes.

Our aim is to promote orienteering as an outdoor sport that is enjoyed by families, hikers, bikers, social walkers, social runners, serious runners, adventure racers and anyone who loves the outdoors. Orienteering – The adventure sport for all.
