2018, the year of Latvia's centenary, World Orienteering Championships will take place in Latvia. To host the top event of the year in the world-level orienteering is a great honour and an equally demanding responsibility.
In the summer of 2018 Riga and Sigulda will be the capital cities of orienteering. Both local and foreign orienteers will enjoy running an orienteering race in a so historically and culturally rich place as the old town of Riga. This will be the first time ever that the World Orienteering Championships Finals will take place in the very heart of a capital city.
For certain, the unique nature and beauty of the terrains of Sigulda area will take away the breathofthe worlds' best orienteers as well as those who enjoy our sport in a more relaxed manner - the picturesque Gauja River valley is a dream for connoisseurs of orienteering.
