Event Calendar

National Events

The calendar of National Events lists events that are expected to draw a national or heavy regional attendance. This includes all OUSA sanctioned National Ranking Events, or NREs, whose results are used to tablulate the 12 month rolling rankings for OUSA members. As a general rule, events shown below in dark blue will have at least one NRE in the listing.

Note that some NREs are ‘restricted’ in the sense that a special waiver has been allowed by sanctioning to include less than the full slate of courses defined in the OUSA Rules of Competition. An example is the orienteering program of the Pan American Masters Games 2024 , which is limited to competitors in age classes 35 and higher.

Multi-day orienteering festivals, such as the Pacific Northwest Orienteering Festival and Anza-Borrego Desert Orienteering Festival are included even if they do not have sanctioned NREs scheduled due to their extended schedule of events.
