SUPPORT THE LEAGUE - SUPPORT THE SPORT
Providing prize-money to winners and runners-up is one way the League supports established and up-and-coming athletes.
We can only do this thanks to the generous donations of supporters who last year built the prize fund to £600, distributed to 22 different people, most of whom went on to compete internationally through the summer.
If you care about backing our performance athletes please join in donating at donorbox.org/ukeol and check ukeliteoleague.org.uk/support. Every little helps.
KEEP YOURSELF UP TO DATE
We have created a new Facebook page so give us a like there, joined Instagram and will continue to post on Twitter @ukeliteoleague.
Keep an eye out for articles in CompassSport, posts on Nopesport and the British Orienteering website.
Best of luck for 2018!
