How to Join Moravian Orienteers

NEW MEMBERSHIPS ARE OPEN

Our membership runs on an annual basis Jan-December. There are lots of benefits to being a member, the most obvious one is that it's cheaper to take part in events! If you've been thinking of joining us wait no longer. We're taking new memberships for 2017 until the end ff August! Everyone joining will have a valid membership until the end of 2017. If you're a "lapsed" member from previous years and wish to rejoin, please log on to your member account at British Orienteering.

Membership for 2017 costs £18 for adults and £3.30 for juniors (under 21). The sport of orienteering heavily subsidises junior membership because we know how important it is to have young people in our sport. If your son or daughter is joining we'd encourage an adult family member to join too in order to help us grow the sport in the UK.

Want to join? To get signed up, please click HERE to go through the joining process. 

(but we recommend you read the notes below before you do) - nb please select "MOR" as your club when you're taken to the British Orienteering page.

There's never been a better time to get in to the adventure running sport of orienteering. Moray & Inverness jointly hosted the World Orienteering Championships in August 2015. Running alongside WOC2015 was the Scottish 6 Days Event (Highland 2015), the biggest orienteering event that the UK has ever have held with over 6,000 participants. The two events combined brought £9.4 million to the Scottish economy! The good news is that the next 6 Days is also in the north on Royal Deeside at the end of July, with many of the competiton areas within 90 minutes' drive from most of Moray!

So you're thinking about joining the club? That makes us happy and we'd certainly love to have you, even if you can only manage the occasional event. We currently (April 2017) have around 190 members. We welcome members of all ages. Families are particularly well catered for at all our events - there's always at least one course suitable for young children. You can try up to three of our events before joining, so that you can see for yourself whether you and your family would enjoy orienteering.

If you've heard about orienteering, like what you've seen and want to be part of it, even if it's only now and again, it's a great idea to become a club member. It will cost you only £3.30 (juniors age 20-) or £18 (seniors age 21+). This includes membership of the Scottish Orienteering Association and British Orienteering ('BOF' is the sport's UK national governing body) . When you join, you get your own "BOF Number" which is your passport to cheaper entry at any event in the UK. 

Remember your membership will go right through until December 2017
