Saturday Series

TVOC runs a series of smaller friendly events, generally once a month, on Saturdays. These events are an exciting introduction to orienteering, and are aimed at children, families, beginners and improvers of all ages. More experienced orienteers are also welcome to attend.

The Thames Valley Junior Orienteering League runs in conjunction with the Saturday Series.

The Saturday Series League for others also runs in conjunction with the Series.

How does it work

All our events require pre-entry, though we try to keep pre-entry open right up to the day pf the event.

The event page gives a link to SiEntries, our external entry system. When you pre-enter you will be asked to say which 15 minute start time block you want. On the day, please try to be there on time and ready to run in your start block. But we will be flexible if you are a little early or late for your block.

What do I need to bring

You don’t need any special equipment, just come dressed for the outdoors and appropriately for the weather.  In all but city centre parks, you should wear trousers to prevent scratches and nettle stings, but don’t be put off as our beginner courses will stick to paths.  Do wear appropriate footwear though – paths do get muddy and slippery in winter.

We will lend you an electronic timing chip (SPORTident), a compass if you like and give you a waterproof map to keep.

Entering

All competitors will need to pre-enter, through our external entry system run by SiEntries. Once you know your way around it, it is quite simple to use, but it may be a little daunting the first time you use it. Look for the link to SiEntries on the event web page. And if you get stuck, the event page will include a name and contact details for who to ask for advice.
