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.
Strong performances from the WCOC contingent helped the North West Junior Squad achieve an impressive 2nd place (behind Scotland) at the JIRCs this weekend. For full results (and more pictures) click here.

Congratulations to the three WCOC junior teams who travelled to the midlands for this year's Peter Palmer relays - and returned with the trophy again, along with a second place in the Joan George competition!
