Bank Holiday Monday, 2 May 2005 - Battersea Park, South London

Young orienteers from around the country will be able to compete in this national festival, which will be held in conjunction with the World Cup Sprint Final. Young people will be able to rub shoulders with the world's top orienteers, cheer on the GB team in what promises to be the most spectacular and spectator-friendly orienteering event ever held in the UK - and then take part in their own competition festival.

Local Young Orienteers Festivals have been held in March and April around the country in which all young people can take part. The best from each Local YO Festival have been selected to represent their town/borough at the Young Orienteers Festival on 2 May.

Clubs, Local Authority Sports Development Units, or youth organisations have been encouraged to hold their own Local YO Festival and send a team to the inter-town festival on 2 May.

Local Young Orienteers Festivals held are:
