Orienteering World Cup 2005


A comprehensive Development Programme, funded by UK Sport, is attached to the World Cup.    The culmination of the programme will be the Young Orienteers Festival to be held on 2 May in Battersea Park, immediately after the World Cup Sprint Finals.

The Development Programme aims to give young people a positive experience of orienteering, develop their orienteering skills, and to leave a lasting legacy of training and infrastructure, so that the interest and awareness generated by the World Cup will flourish long after the World Cup races are over.

Development Conference was held in October 2004 to help define the outline of the Development Programme.
