BIG 5 Orienteering Week


Fri 29th Dec 2023 to Wed 3rd Jan 2024

After careful consideration, the organising committee of the Big5 Orienteering week regret to announce another postponement of the sixth Big5 O week.

This was due to take place over New Year 2021/22 but will be postponed by another year due to the ongoing Covid19 pandemic which has disrupted many activities, including orienteering, in 2020/2021. This has made it impossible to begin preparations for the event this year.

We are pleased to announce that the sixth Big5 O week will take place from 29th December 2023 to 3rd January 2024. We are excited to be going to a new area for orienteering in South Africa, the Garden Route. The Garden Route is one of the premier tourist destinations in South Africa, situated on the south coast in the Western Cape.

Further details will be available during the first quarter of 2022.

Once again, we look forward to welcoming Orienteers from around the world to five days of first class orienteering and a comprehensive programme of social events.
