Welcome to Harlequins Orienteering Club’s website. We are based in the West Midlands of England and our ‘catchment’ covers Birmingham, the Black Country, Worcestershire and parts of Shropshire and Herefordshire.

If you are new to orienteering, take a look at our New to Orienteering page for hints and tips about how to get started.


If you want to run in a JK relay team please let Captain Kerstin know by email, with your preference for leg, AdHoc/competetive etc before 9th March. And if you want a relay run at the British Champs, the deadline is 23rd March.

We are committed to the principles of Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults and our Safeguarding page explains our policies and practice.

And as a reward for reading this far, a reminder of why we love orienteering!
