British Orienteering - Return to Orienteering Guidance

Following the recent announcements by the government, British Orienteering has amended the operational guidance for orienteering events in England.

The move to Step 4 on 19 July in England sees the removal of a large number of restrictions, with no set restrictions on the format or how many people can take part in sport and physical activity.

British Orienteering would like to thank all the volunteers and clubs who’ve worked hard within the previous restrictions to ensure the sport returned in a safe a manner as possible. Whilst restrictions have been lifted, COVID is very much still in circulation and we urge a continued responsible approach to running events and coach sessions. Some people will still be cautious so please be mindful to respect others personal choices as some normality returns.

The following simple overarching guidance of key considerations for participants, orienteering coaches, officials and athletes is a summary of relevant Government guidance. 

An accompanying set of FAQs contain information on specific questions, whilst Sport England has also published separate FAQs.

Please familiarise yourself with the new guidance:

Good results for MDOC competitors in latest TORUS event

John Kewley reports ...

The most recent TORUS event saw the TrailO community commemorating (commiserating?) the lack of the European Trail Orienteering Championships (which moved from May 2020 to August 2020 to May 2021 and will now not be until May 2022. We therefore had 5 days (corresponding at least nominally, to the Model, TempO, PreO1, PreO2 and Relay days that we’d have had at ETOC and on their respective days). The best 3 from 5 results counted for individual, club and country.

Terrain was Finnish forest (in contrast to most of the TORUS days so far which have been park or urban). This was expected to suit the more experienced Orienteers and Trail Orienteers who had experienced this terrain more and so it proved.

Going into the final event JK had the narrowest of margins over Ben to be top Brit, but both Mike Greenwood and Tom Dobra (BOK) had lower scores to drop and Tom ended out on top.
