We had a great time running the KFO orienteering event at Townhill Wood today.

Everyone seemed enthusiastic at the end, even if they were frustrated by some of the challenges of the course.

Many thanks to John Campbell who planned the courses. Thanks to Claire, Craig, Gordon, Steve, James, Caleb, Phil, Jane, Alan, Shona and Nathan for help at the event. We could not run these without such helpful volunteers.

The detailed results are here.

Saturday 9th December 2023 – KFO Xmas Score event at Lochore Meadows results



Congratulations to everyone who took part in the festive orienteering at Lochore Meadows today.
Great fun was had by all, despite the rain.
The results are available on this link.
You can see which of the different controls everyone went to. 
Thank you to our hardy helpers for putting out and collecting the controls, setting up the registration and marshalling the road crossing: Claire, Shona, Adam, Gordon, Caleb, James, Andy and Matthew.
Unfortunately there was a problem with the tech which means we haven't been able to allocate the bonus points for festive attire, but hopefully those who indulged enjoyed the day anyway.

Orienteering and KFO

E Lomond E Lomond


Orienteering is an exciting foot race, often through forests, navigating from one point to another on a predefined course printed on an orienteering map. The aim is to navigate around all the points in the shortest time; the fun is in avoiding getting lost, in order to beat your rivals. All ages can take part, from age 2 to over 90 years.

Kingdom of Fife Orienteers (KFO) is a small club. We cover the whole of Fife, with members as far north as Gauldry, as far west as Saline and as far south as Dalgety Bay, and beyond. The club always welcomes beginners - no experience needed.

Orienteering can take place almost anywhere from the remotest forest and countryside to urban parks and school playgrounds. It’s a great sport for anyone who just loves to be outdoors. It is also a very good way for runners, joggers and walkers to improve their navigation skills.

Not for nothing is orienteering sometimes known as ‘The Thought Sport’! Decisions are needed from even before reaching the Start of the course right through to punching the Finish. These decisions are usually based on information received from what can be seen on the ground, information received from the map, personal navigation skills, personal fitness, confidence in abilities and so on.

The best place to get started is at a local event, especially an introductory event near to you. At most events you can just turn up and have a go. You have to register and pay the fee and there will be someone at registration who will help guide you as what to do. When you get to the Start the adventure begins. We hope you enjoy the experience and will want to join KFO, see the Membership page.
