The UK Elite Orienteering League aims to be an attractive series for competitors by providing prize money and prizes.

These have been donated by generous individuals and organisations keen to support the elite orienteering scene in the UK. If that describes you then please consider donating to the prize fund online via Donorbox or by emailing Duncan Birtwistle at

53 different athletes have been supported via the prize fund over the last four seasons and have gone on to compete at World Championships, Junior World Championships and various levels of European competition.

We and the athletes are most grateful for the support received and would like thank previous donors who are listed below.


We are pleased to announce that SILVA will provide prizes for the 2019 League.⠀

At the end of the series category winners can look forward to receiving premium duffle bags to keep their things safe and dry.⠀

Both SILVA and the Elite League strive for quality and they back our mission to invigorate the orienteering scene.⠀
