British Orienteering - Return to Orienteering Guidance
Taking account of the latest government guidelines and following England moving to Step 3 of the government roadmap, British Orienteering has amended the operational guidance on start rates for orienteering events in England as follows:
a. At Step 3 from 17 May, a maximum of six starters per minute will be permitted from each start location, regardless of whether start times or start windows are allocated.
b. At Step 4 (from no earlier than 21 June), British Orienteering do not currently expect to retain any restrictions on start rates. We will provide further guidance on orienteering at Step 4 once the government guidance and any remaining legal restrictions are clearer.
The organiser may choose whether to allocate specific start times or start windows. In making this choice, the organiser must have regard to the need to maintain social distancing and for participants waiting to enter the start system to adhere to the legal maximum gathering size of thirty people.
Please familiarise yourself with the new guidance:
