ISF Orienteering 2011


The World Schools Orienteering Championship will be held in Primiero this May, and the organisers are looking forward to hosting over 30 nations to the competition.

The organisers say, in wonderful prose: 

It will be a true world championship, with the event scheduled for 21 - 27 May 2011 in Trentino, in the splendid Primiero valley, and it will definitely be a spectacular event. Pre-registrations are already coming from all over the world and the organizing Committee of the World Schools Championship Isf is working hard: there are still many months to go, but the organizing machine is already running at full speed. The news is that China will be present with its teams who will try to clinch the greatest number of medals, while The races planned in this charming valley of Trentino will be a true world event. Even far away New Zealand has already registered for the event and therefore the ‘All Blacks’ with map and compass promise to battle it out in Primiero. Already there are about 30 countries who have already registered, among which are: Germany, Spain, France, Portugal, Ukraine, Belarus, Austria, Switzerland and Slovenia.

"Among competitors and technicians – explains professor Andro Ferrari, coordinator of Physical Education Teaching on the territory of the province of Trento and technical director of Italia 2011 – over 1000 people are expected to come during the week of the world event from 21 to 27 May. These are great figures and we are getting ready to make sure that everything is perfect.”.
