We are happy to welcome the world championship in orienteering 2019 to Norway and Østfold. To host the top event in the international orienteering community is a great honour, and an equally demanding responsibility. 

It`s a great pleasure to welcome you all to Euromeeting 2017, and to the county of Østfold. This is the first time for many of you to get more knowledge about this region in the South-East part of Norway. You will also have the pleasure to visit the 1000-years old city of Sarpsborg, which is the host city for WOC 2019. Here you will find the official event hotel and the venue for the medal ceremonies. Sarpsborg is known for its long industrial history, a lot of green areas and the big waterfall called Sarpefossen. In 2016 the biggest orienteering event in Norway, O-festivalen, was arranged in and around the city. During 3 days about 3000 participants had the pleasure to run in beautiful surroundings.
