Ten Athletes Named in GB Squad for Sprint World Orienteering Championships in Edinburgh Five days of orienteering and family fun in Scotland’s Capital

Posted by Marketing Admin on

Starting Friday, July 12, ten athletes will don their Great Britain vests to compete in the Sprint World Orienteering Championships in Edinburgh, running from July 12-16. We at Revive Active are proud to be the Official Supplement Partner for Team GB, supporting their energy, immunity, and joint health as they navigate the urban terrain.

Team GB athlete Charlotte Ward has integrated Zest Active Pro-Sport and Joint Complex Pro-Sport into her training, describing them as ‘simple, yet effective.’ Ralph Street has praised the supplements as ‘invaluable, allowing him to push himself further.’

Often thought of as a countryside sport, WOC 2024 will be staged in the intricate urban terrain Edinburgh has to offer, with the capital’s iconic landmarks providing the perfect backdrop for the elite courses.


The event is yet another opportunity for the public to watch elite sport in the capital – but this time for free. Fans will be able to watch the world’s best orienteering athletes tackle challenging routes which weave through the city’s historical and cultural attractions while enjoying a fun day out with the family.


There are free family activities are on offer throughout the week, including orienteering mazes, fun races and all the action on live screens. The orienteering maze and big screen will feature in Princes Street Garden on Friday (12 July), followed by fun races for kids and adults alike at The Meadows, as well as another orienteering maze, from Saturday 13 July until Monday 15 July.

With Great Britain finishing second in the medal table at the last Sprint World Orienteering Championships in Denmark in 2022, the host nation will be looking to go one better and top the table.

The five-day orienteering festival also features amateur races for all ages and levels, with competitors as young as 10 and some in their 80s. The ‘WOC Tour’ will allow competitors, from those relatively new to the sport up to experienced recreational athletes, to experience the best of urban orienteering.

The first elite races will be the Individual Sprint taking place in Leith on the morning of Friday 12th July, with finals in the afternoon finishing in Princes Street Gardens. The action continues on Sunday 14th July at Heriot Watt University with the Team Sprint Relay. On Tuesday 16th July the Knockout Sprint qualifications take place at Wester Hailes with the finals finishing on St John Street in Central Edinburgh.

We, at Revive Active will have a stand on Sunday, 14 July in the Oriam Arena, Heriot Watt University. Pop over, sample our supplements and you may even get the chance to meet some of the Team GB athletes.
