Although the Covid-19 restrictions have been relaxed and serious illness and death are now thankfully rare, Covid-19 continues to circulate at significant levels in the community and Long Covid remains a consideration.  Please continue to take precautions to protect yourself and other people.

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 symptoms of a respiratory infection you should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.
  • Please maintain social distancing where practical, including from the volunteers on the organising team; e.g. at Download.  In particular, please be considerate and remember that other people may be more concerned about Covid-19 and have a greater desire to maintain social distancing than you do.
  • Before and after your run, you may wish to avoid unnecessary close contact with people outside your household.
  • Continue to 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.

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

If you have a relevant medical condition, please add this to your competitor details in Racesignup.  Any information provided will be treated in strict confidence and will only be used if you need medical treatment and are unable to communicate at the time.
