About KFO

Who are KFO?

Kingdom of Fife Orienteers (KFO) metamorphosed from West Fife Orienteers (WFO) in 2000, shortly after WFO's 21st birthday celebrations in 1999. As the new name suggests, we cover the whole of Fife, with members as far north as Gauldry, as far west as Dunfermline, as far east as Anstruther and as far south as Rossyth, and beyond.

WFO's first event was at Townhill woods, north of Dunfermline, in 1978. Despite being a small Club, we are regularly involved in the planning and organisation of local and major events.



It is necessary to become a member of an orienteering club after competing in three events, in order to be covered by the public liability insurance which is arranged through the national governing bodies. 

As for all clubs in Scotland Membership of Kingdom of Fife Orienteers is available in two ways: either as a member of the club, of the Scottish Orienteering Association and of British Orienteering; or just as a member of the club and of the Scottish Orienteering Association.  The latter option is aimed at people who tend to orienteer in their local part of Scotland and there are some restrictions to this membership option – see Join or Renew Your Membership.
