We’ve been asking questions behind the scenes as we attempt to pull off a 2020 season for you 🏁
We’ve got a few rounds pencilled in so far. Negotiations are still ongoing and deals already made are currently under media-embargo 🤐
All racing will be subject to the guidance in force at the time. Restricted entry may be required in which case we’ll up our media game to keep you in the action.
We’ve got a little taster for you to check out above though 🇬🇧 🇨🇿 🤔
Check back soon for more details!

With the season on hold we have had chance to get prepared for races in the future.
In response to feedback we have worked with the British Orienteering Map Advisory Group to create a new symbol to make competitors aware of where filming may be taking place on the course.
We are pleased to release the specs of the new 714 GoPro Zone symbol which is now included in the ISOM 2017-2 and ISSprOM 2019 symbol sets on the British Orienteering website.
You can look forward to seeing the symbol debut at Midland Sprint Meet later this year (if orienteering restarts...) ...
