Welcome to ASO Orienteering News

Compass The ASO League is an annual competition open to any school or youth group. It is a series of 8 Sunday morning orienteering races held throughout the year in which competitors score points for themselves and for their schools.

MapOrienteering is an exciting sport which provides a tough mental and physical challenge to the competitor as they use a map to race around an unknown area of forest or moorland. The sport is perfect for people of all fitness levels as you can compete at your own pace. It is a great way to explore the countryside and to learn map-reading and decision-making skills.

The ASO Parents League introduced last season continues in 2016-17. Scores are on the Scores page

SI CardThrough the ASO League you can find out more about your local orienteering club and take part in national competitions like the British Schools Championships. From there, who knows where it might take you!?

Results are now up, with a few tweaks to come for the Secondary Score race.

Due to a very unfortunate oversight, the Score race did not include any controls of a Yellow or Orange standard. As a result, Years 7, 8 and 9 had a pretty challenging morning! Well done every one of you for sticking with it and doing the best you could in the 45 minutes.

Everyone has scored something (even if you got a negative race score) and thankfully, most runners have actually ended up with a points score that is close to and sometimes greater than their usual tally.

Many people, including me, could have spotted the problem beforehand and prevented it; so apologies on behalf of all the BOK, ASO and school team managers, who didn't question the obvious-with-hindsight missing race details.
