Sørlandsgaloppen 2016 is organized by following orienteering clubs: Birkenes IL, IL Høvdingen, IL Vindbjart, Kristiansand OK, Oddersjaa SSK, OK Sør and Søgne- and Songdalen OK.

We have the pleasure of inviting orienteering friends for 4 great days with orienteering competitions in close connection to Blindleia (famous shoreline in Southern Norway). We wish this may be days of vacation, meetings with old and new friends, beach life, exploring events in Southern Norway and not least some challenging competitions!
