West Cumberland Orienteering Club is based in the Western half of the English Lake District. We host events on a weekly basis from informal Thursday nights to district or regional events held at weekends. Everyone is welcome to try the sport.
You might have heard some of the older WCOC Juniors talking about "Lagganlia", "Deeside", "Norway", "Talent Camp" and so on. To get an idea of what it is like to attend one of these various summer training camps and tours:
- here is a link to a video from this year's "Lagganlia" Tour, and
- here is another link to various reports from WCOC and LOC Juniors who have attended them.
Happy watching / reading - it might just inspire you...
Peter Palmer winners again - another superb effort from all our Juniors! They've only gone and won entries and accommodation at 10Mila 2019 in Skane, Sweden for a WCOC Team. As always many many thanks to all the drivers and helpers, to WCOC for all your support, to SYO for putting on such a great event, to the Junior who returned from Uni and those who delayed going to Uni until after the race! You really are all Best in the West!
Well done to all the WCOC members who travelled (or stayed) south for the British Middle Champs at Stock Hill near Wells. The WCOC Juniors produced another very impressive set of results, with outstanding wins for Daisy (W12), Niamh (W18), Joe H (M16) and Alastair (M18); along with top 10 placings for Lily, Rosie, Caitlin and Carys (5th, 6th, 7th and 9th W16); Joe S and Charlie (3rd and 9th M16); and Zac and Daniel (2nd and 4th M18).
Well done to all the WCOC members who travelled south for the British Sprint Champs at Bath University.

Just in case you missed it, here is a link to the BBC's Adventure Show which features the British Champs at Balmoral earlier in the year, and includes an interview with WCOC's very own Charlotte Watson along with lots of other familiar faces (available to watch until Sept 18th).
Niamh, Alastair and Daniel wrote a blog about their EYOC and JWOC experiences this summer - if you missed it, click here.

In case you had missed it, the Allerdale Bike Challenge is back again - and like last year there will be an overall league combining results from the ABC events and the corresponding WCOC Thursday evening events (our clever stastisticians will work it out).
