The Lancaster event is available now (details on the Fixtures page).  Despite being  in Lockdown British Orienteering  guidance shows that we can continue with the Lancaster and Blackburn events in the current  format  (see news item 29th September for details).  The BO  Guidance is as below;

'Within these new restrictions for England, the government continue to emphasise the importance of outdoor exercise and recreation. Orienteering remains an excellent, socially distanced sport, and many types of orienteering activity can be undertaken within these new restrictions in England. Despite these new measures, orienteering is still very much open for everyone to enjoy.

Orienteering activities that can continue within the new government guidance for England areas follows

  • Unsupported training activities on your own, with people you live with, within your support bubble, or with one person from another household if social distancing is maintained. These include the use of training maps created by individuals or clubs
  • The use of Permanent Orienteering Courses, Virtual Orienteering Courses and activities such as MapRun events. All Virtual Orienteering Courses and activities must be open for a minimum of at least seven days, to reduce the risk of overcrowding
  • One-to-one outdoor orienteering coaching
  • Mapping and Local planning for future events.

The government guidance is that you should look to reduce the number of journeys you make. Outdoor exercise should be done locally wherever possible, but you can and should travel to do so if necessary (for example, to access an open space).'

It is proposed that the autumn street runs will now be open until the end of Dec to give you more chance to be spread out/ not meet up and also for individuals to decide when they feel comfortable to travel. With luck all those events will be available soon so you can pick which ones you wish to run and so can opt to stay very local if you wish to. Bob Nash
