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.

There were Golds for Niamh Hunter (W16), Simon Hunter (M45), Rosie Spencer (W14) and Daniel Spencer (M16), Silver for Vanessa Brierley (W45) and Bronze for Carys Thomas (W14). All those night events we do clearly produce results - well done everyone!
