Take Part

We look forward to welcoming clubs, families and individuals from around the world to WOC Tour 2024, both to support their national teams and to enjoy their own races in some outstanding locations in Scotland’s capital.

The Tour offers a diverse range of orienteering races and activities which are fully integrated with the official WOC Programme: several races use the WOC 2024 competition areas.

Provisional schedule:

  • Thursday 11th July: warm-up event – Holyrood Park
  • Friday 12th July: sprint – Leith
  • Saturday 13th July: indoor race – venue tbc
  • Sunday 14th July: urban (middle distance) – Riccarton Campus, Heriot-Watt University
  • Monday 15th July: urban (long distance) – Central Edinburgh
  • Tuesday 16th July: sprint – Wester Hailes

Event timings on Friday, Sunday and Tuesday will be arranged to facilitate spectating the WOC races.

WOC Tour competitors are encouraged to use public transport wherever possible. All venues are accessible by public transport and Park & Ride options are available for competitors using accommodation outwith the city. We hope to offer competitors a reduced price transport pass for the duration of the Tour.

Entries will open in January 2024.
