Give someone LATVIA O-week for Christmas!

Christmas is the time for giving. The organizers of the World Orienteering Championships suggest next year filled with pleasant emotions as your Christmas gift to your beloved ones: an invitation to the World Orienteering Championships spectator race "LATVIA O-week"!

"LATVIA O-week"! will be held parallel to the World Orienteering Championships between 3 and 12 August. The runners will have an opportunity to enjoy sprint, forest sprint, and two middle and two long orienteering distances in the most picturesque areas of Latvia that, apart from inspiring people with the amazing nature, also narrate a story about the history of Latvia.

When completing the registration for the competition, the entry can be designed in the form of a gift card with the recipient’s name on it. You can make one more surprise for the recipient of the gift: a shirt with the competition logo and design, to be collected at the competition arena.

The competition programme and the site for entries is here:, and the competition regulations are here:

The World Orienteering Championships 2018 will be held in Latvia from 4 to 11 August. Sprint races will take place in Riga, whereas forest competitions will be held in the vicinity of Sigulda. The best orienteers from more than 50 national teams will take part in the Championships. The World Trail-O Championships will be held concurrently.
