HER Outdoors Week 2022

Orienteering Ireland and its clubs, in collaboration with a number of the local sports partnerships around the country, are hosting a series of orienteering events during Her Outdoors Week 8 – 14th August 2022, with many of the events being run in conjunction with the MapRun6 app.

HER Outdoors Week aims to celebrate and encourage more females to get out and enjoy the benefits of being in the outdoors while bringing visibility to the opportunities for females to get involved in outdoor physical activity.

With a number of Orienteering Ireland instructors and three clubs (SEVO, Fingal, SOLAR) running these events, the orienteering community will be well represented around the country during Her Outdoors Week.

A successful Her Outdoors grant investment application was put towards the development of MapRun information boards and resources. These will be displayed during the Her Outdoors orienteering events and can be used for future MapRun events and activities to help promote this orienteering resource.
