Coronavirus and Orienteering

We are all aware of the ongoing coronavirus situation.  I am reproducing here the recent communication from British Orienteering - we have been requested to cancel all events for the next 12 weeks and the events at Tillyfourie, Redburn and Sluie have now been removed from the events list.

Full statement below.

18th Mar 20

It is with great sadness that we are now in a position where all orienteering activities in the UK have to be suspended with immediate effect.

We are aware that the Coranvirus outbreak is a very fluid and rapidly changing situation. We all, therefore, continue to follow advice from the Public Health England, the World Health Organisation and both local and national governments on this matter and will keep the orienteering community updated as appropriate.

We know how great the sport is at supporting each other and we ask that you continue to pull together (albeit virtually) during this difficult time. We will do our best to get you back in the forests as soon as it is safe to do so.

Finally, we ask that you continue to follow the government's guidance on how to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Please stay safe and support each other during this hard time.
