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.

Details     Pre-entry


Our next training/coaching session:

Wednesday evenings in December and January are full of Northern Night Cup events.  These events are good for training.  Orienteering at night makes you focus on distance judgement, map contact and accurate compass bearings.  Practice this during the night cup series. 

At Lochandinty on Dec 13th  someone will be on hand to talk you through your course if you want some tips (short and medium courses only).

Culloden Woods - Saturday Dec 2nd

The weather warmed up for our Culloden Woods event.  It is a nicer place in the daylight compared to our night race there two years ago!  Thanks to the event team: Carolyn Cload (organiser), Dave Summers (planner) and Joan Noble (SI) and all the helpers on the day.

Now we have to wait with baited breath for the final results of the INVOC club league....


Club League updated November 15th

[posted Nov 21st]

The senior A league has come to an end, and there is one event left in the senior B league and the junior leagues.  Congratulations to Laurence Cload for his win in the senior A league, and well done to James Laird for making him work for it.  In the battle for 3rd place Will Nicolson just snuck it ahead of Jon Shepherd.  Well done to Will and commiserations to Jon.

In the other leagues Culloden is the final event.  Angus Laird and Finlay Raynor look like they will win the Junior B and A leagues, but all the other podium positions are up for grabs.  Get your running shoes on for Culloden....

Anagach - November 12th

[posted 16th Nov 2017]

Thanks to the event team: Susan Blackwood (organiser), Alec Keith (planner), Val Springett (SI timing) & Kevin Holliday (controller) plus all the helpers on the day.
