Welcome to NZSSOC 2024!

Orienteering Wellington is looking forward to welcoming all year 7-13 orienteers from across New Zealand to the Wellington region for three days of high-quality orienteering from the 19th-21st July 2024. Join us and showcase your navigational skills, support your friends and create lasting memories in unique terrain.


The events are located north of Wellington, towards the Kapiti Coast.


Over the three days we have three different disciplines to test your orienteering prowess; a Sprint, a Long distance and a Relay.
