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.

Our current iROMP

 INVOC invites you to the latest iROMP (INVOC Regular Orienteering Mapping Programme) at Cnoc a Bhreacaich, near Dingwall. There are four courses courtesy of Laurence Cload: orange, light green, green and blue. It’s not an organised event– the controls have been laid out on the hill side, so just print a map and go run the courses in your own time. There is Maprun set up for the event (or will be shortly!) which you can use to compare your time to others or you can submit it via the following links. Maps were distributed in the INVOC weekly news email on 21 September. Other clubs can email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Evanton Local event on 31st October

Details     Provisional results Routegadget

Sorry, we did have an issue with faulty syncing of one of the Finish units and also Control 171, meaning some people registered negative times for that leg. Total times have been corrected meaning some people who dibbed on the left-hand Finish unit, early on, had to have 2min 53 sec added to their total time.

 


Anagach, Grantown-on-Spey - Junior Cup Round 3: Sunday Sept 19th

Not strictly speaking our event, but organised by Alison, planned by Jon and on our area with a lot of our club members helping - so almost our event.  It went very smoothly - thanks to all the helpers from Alison.
