Orienteering in England suspended

Due to the second lockdown in England to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), all orienteering events until at least 2 December 2020 are cancelled or postponed. There is more information available via our home page or the British Orienteering web site.

The next scheduled event in the region is on 6 December, organised by Octavian Droobers, but is dependent on clarity that the present suspension will be lifted in time. If it goes ahead, pre-entry will be mandatory: please do not travel expecting to enter on the day. More information will be available via the Octavian Droobers web site.
