The highlight of the Club’s year is the White Rose Weekend held on the North York Moors over the August Bank-Holiday weekend. This is one of the longest running events in the British orienteering calendar and provides a range of orienteering events for all abilities.

The White Rose is also one of the few O weekends to offer an exclusive campsite for competitors and this is what makes the event an exceptional opportunity for a real orienteering holiday weekend in great North Yorkshire terrain. The campsite means that you can park your car or campervan on Friday evening, knowing that you don’t need to move it again till Monday. The site has water, toilets and a great catering operation. Every year more than 600 orienteers head to the North York Moors for what has become a firm favourite in the orienteering calendar.
