Summer 2017 Orienteering

3ROC orienteering news will be largely on the club Facebook page here over the summer.


… except for drawing the map and processing the results and communicating with you!

There’s plenty of orienteering on, with summer events on weekday evenings from mid-May to late August. Full details are on the IOA fixtures page here. For events in Northern Ireland, see here. There are several urban/sprint orienteering events over the summer so you should give it a try and get your friends, neighbours, family, sports clubs and workmates out as well: Newbridge, Bayside, Dunshaughlin, Skerries, Newcastle …

You’re still in time to enter the Scottish 6-Day at Ballater from 30th July to 5th August; you can follow the Irish teams at some of the big international events (World Championships in Estonia; Junior World Champs in Finland; European Youth Champs in Slovakia); you could consider a weekend at the London City Race in September.

Don’t forget you can join 3ROC online here and get instant savings on event entries.

Our next 3ROC events are the three Phoenix Parks on August 15, 22 and 29 and the Leinster League event on September 17th which will be either on Three Rock or at the Pine Forest.

See you in the forest!
