O EVENTS CALENDAR

Click here for an explanation of this page

Orienteering events are now permitted. In these difficult times, you can expect compulsory pre-entry, entries closing early as numbers limits are reached, and short-notice cancellations. The larger events are particularly speculative. Even more than usual, check with the organising club's website rather than believe what you read here. I'd appreciate an e-mail if you spot one of the errors.

This calendar is only a selection, see the British Orienteering or World of O calendars for more choice; also since this is primarily a Mole Valley calendar, it excludes events by other clubs for their own members only. I've not attempted to modify selection criteria in response to respond to the virus situation; I'll leave you to decide what you are willing and permitted to travel to.

I've started showing event entry opening dates where I discover them in advance, but often entries are already open before I find out. I'm only showing event closing dates where they are several days before the event, but these can be irrelevant as some events sell out within hours of opening. The usual disclaimer that I will miss some dates still applies, especially for the overseas events.

I've added a new column to flag Entry
                Open UK events for which entries are currently open to the general orienteering public. This is not intended to be a permanent feature, but I hope it will be helpful while even local events require online entry, but entries only open a few days before the event. Do not rely on it, however! In particular, do not expect it to be bang up to date; inevitably there will be a delay between the entries opening and me updating this web page. Even if I know that entries will open at midnight, I'm not going to stay up to upload a fresh version! And I'm not even going to try to provide this information for non-UK events.

Most clubs also offer a variety of formats of “any time” courses. “Permanent Courses” (POC), where you look for a wooden post rather than a control kite, have been around for years. “Virtual Courses” (VOC), where your mobile phone tells you when you have reached the control, are a recent development: Mole Valley (POC), Mole Valley (VOC); Southdowns; Southern Navigators (POC), Southern Navigators (VOC); Guildford (POC), Guildford (VOC); South London; Saxons (POC), Saxons (VOC); Dartford (POC), Dartford (VOC); London. Some clubs have competitions based on running virtual courses within a specified time period.
