Inverness Orienteering Club, or INVOC as we are better known, is the local orienteering club for the Inverness area and much of the rest of highland Scotland. If you are new to orienteering, our New to orienteering? page offers a starting point  to find out a bit more about the sport, and our About INVOC page tells you a little bit about the club.

 

2015 was an exciting time for orienteering in the Highlands, with the World Championships and 6 Day Event in the summer, and 2016 is sure to serve up lots more great events, challenge and fun. If you are not yet a member join us now to get involved, and enjoy reduced entry rates to all our events plus loads of other benefits. Membership costs just £17 for adults, £4 for juniors.

Introducing TD5 Winter Training

Technical Difficulty 5 (TD5) the lingo for the top navigation challenge faced by those running green, blue, brown and black courses.  We are introducing a monthly training session using our best areas to practise different navigation techniques and to just to run in terrain.  It will run monthly for 6 months from October to March - putting you in tip top shape for the peak orienteering season of April & May.  Sessions suitable for existing TD5ers and those aspiring to be TD5ers.  No excuses now. 

First session is a contour only course on Carse on October 2nd (links in to the coaching being held there).  More details on the coaching page, and a full list of the TD5 training sessions on the events page.  Email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
