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.

HOC members are cordially invited to the Club Championships in the delightful Uffmoor Wood on 9th December. Details of the event and the social lunch afterwards are here. You can read more about the rules and the trophies on offer on the Club Champions page, or study the all important Bert Pardoe handicap factors.

As well as events organised by HOC and other clubs our Smartphone Orienteering and Permanent Orienteering Courses offer a range of opportunities to practice your skills.

Check out the results from previous club events, and if you are a Harlequin member pop into the club forum for a chat.

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!
