Who are we

In 1982, St. Andrew’s Orienteering Club (Glasgow) was formed in the East End of Glasgow with the primary purpose of making Orienteering a more accessible activity.
By producing maps & hosting events, setting up permanent facilities & facilitating schools’ involvement we continue to promote Orienteering as a
Sport For All & a Sport For Life.

Although we may be numerically small, we do a phenomenal (no sponsorship in the air I’m afraid!) amount of events & continue to pioneer how Orienteering can be embraced throughout education.

In 2017 we have continued to liaise with Local Authorities to support our work; Review the usefulness or otherwise of using Sports Centres to sell map packs ; Arranged 4 Score Events ; Supported World Orienteering Day; Piloted the STAG/SOA Membership option ; Offered Orienteering Activity as often as we can ; Hosted our 35th Anniversary Event in our latest new mapped area - Grandtully.

STAG hosted a SOUL based at Cumbernauld Theatre on Sunday 20th August 2017.
The Glasgow Parks Championships returns to its original date of 1st Sunday in December.

Formed in 1982, we continue to provide new & innovative ideas to stimulate local and Scottish Orienteering.
