We are fundraising via the Orienteering Foundation, who have kindly agreed to support this initiative, and all donations made via this page will be granted by the Orienteering Foundation to reduce the level of GBR athlete contributions to WOC 2017.

Last year an athlete competing internationally as part of the GB team had to personally find around £2500 just to be able to stand on the start line.  This year this will at least double because of a reduction in external funding.  This does not include the cost of training, training camps, races to improve world ranking or selection races, this was purely to compete at International Championships.

So, what can you do to help? The aim of this page is to focus on the most imminent problem, paying for WOC 2017. 

We would like to offer you the opportunity to contribute towards the cost of sending a GB team to the World Championships this year.  For more information on the initiative, news and athlete profiles please see our associated blog page.

For more information on how the funds raised will be handled and distributed:
