What is Orienteering


EMOA League Event Bagworth. 25th April 2021

Entries Close: Thursday Midnight on Fabian4

any BOF member may enter


There will be two start blocks for this event.

This has been done to reduce pressure on parking and help to provide COVID social distancing.
• first block is 10.30-11.15
• second from 12.15-1.00
The Blue/Brown start will be roughly 5 minutes from parking.

The White/Yellow/Orange and all the Greens will be adjacent.

Choose the start block you would like in your mind before you start typing into Fabian4. When you choose your course, then you will also indicate your start block. E.g.:
• Brown (10.30 to 11.15 starts)
• Brown (12.15 to 13.00 starts)
• Blue (10.30 to 11.15 starts)
• Blue (12.15 to 13.00 starts)

You will be asked to arrive no more than 30 minutes before your start time, so please come prepared to run.
If you are late, then we will still be able to accommodate you.
If you think you are going to arrive early, then we ask you to wait away from the area.

After you run, please leave immediately.

While orienteering competition can resume, we still need to keep the social elements to a minimum.

Please note there can be no spectators.

For details see the LEI event page.

Returning to Competitive Orienteering (Again!)

It is hoped that the club will restart competitive events after Easter.

The first event that is planned is an EMOA League Event at Bagworth Heath on Sunday 25th April. This should be followed by the first Summer League Event on 27th April.

The restart is conditional on further guidance from the Government via British Orienteering and the availability of permission from landowners. It is likely that there will be a number of changes to the Summer League programme as we progress through the summer.

The Bagworth event will have a limit of 150. It will be pre-entry only via Fabian4. Initially places will be restricted to EMOA members only.

At present we only have volunteers for 7 of the 17 Summer League events. If you have not already volunteered please do so. Without event officials for the remaining Summer League events, they will not be able to take place.

We should have further information on the restart by Easter. I will update the website and Facebook pages as soon as possible.
