O EVENTS CALENDAR

Click here for an explanation of this page

Orienteering events in England are expected to restart on 29th March, initially only with small local events.

Most clubs offer a variety of formats of “any time” courses which are unaffected by COVID-19 restrictions provided you can get to them. “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 had competitions based on running virtual courses within a specified time period, but these have now been suspended.

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.

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'd appreciate an e-mail if you spot one of the errors.

I've started showing event entry opening dates where I discover them in advance, but often entries are already open before I find out - in which case there won't be an “opening” here. I'm still showing event closing dates where they are more than 48 hours before the event, but these can be irrelevant as events may sell out well in advance. This is particularly true of the summer “holiday” events, some of which are filling up within hours of opening - there seems to be a pent-up demand! The usual disclaimer that I will miss some dates still applies, especially for the overseas events.
