With the lockdown restrictions being eased across all areas of England as the country moves to Step 1 of the Government's roadmap, organised outdoor orienteering, including competitions and coaching, can resume in England from Monday 29th March.
British Orienteering's guidance reflects the Government's requirement that, from 29th March, everyone should continue to minimise travel wherever possible. Beyond saying that overnight stays are not allowed, the Government has not clarified what 'minimising travel' means in practice, and there are not currently any defined limits on travel distances or times.
Please familiarise yourself with the new guidance:

British Orienteering have produced a Code of Conduct for participants which take into account the best practice in recognising the dangers from the Covid-19 virus.
A range of smartphone orienteering courses in and around south Manchester are now available via a dedicated website thanks to the efforts of MDOC members Ian Watson, Peter Ross and Doug Edwards during lockdown. The courses use the latest version of the MapRun app that was trialled at last season's night street league, MapRunF.
Challenges include finding as many postboxes in your area as you can in an hour and navigating the streets of Altrincham on a map drawn 120 years ago.
