Although the Covid-19 restrictions have been relaxed and the Omicron wave has mostly subsided, the pandemic is not yet over.  Please continue to take precautions to protect yourself and other people ..... including the volunteers who make orienteering events possible.

Orienteering is an outdoor, naturally socially-distanced sport.  However, although you should be relatively safe when you are out on your run, there is a risk of Covid-19 transmission during the pre- and post-run activities.

Given that:-

  • Please do not attend this event if you have Covid-19 symptoms.  In accordance with Government guidance, if you have Covid-19 symptoms you should stay at home and avoid contact with other people.
  • Please maintain effective social distancing, including from the volunteers on the organising team; e.g. at Download.
  • Before and after your run, avoid unnecessary close contact with people outside your household.
  • Maintain good hand hygiene.

A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the Organiser, but please remember that competitors take part at their own risk.  Orienteering is an adventure sport – your safety while orienteering is your own responsibility.

Please make sure that you download even if you do not complete your course.

Lone drivers: Please leave your labelled car keys at Download as a safety check.

CLOK strongly recommends that you carry a whistle whilst participating in this (and every) orienteering event.

If you have a relevant medical condition please inform the Organiser before the event or at Registration.
