Orienteering is cancelled in the UK for some time to come. That includes the JK, Britain's biggest annual orienteering competition which takes places over Easter. To help soften this blow GB Squad member Chris Smithard has created a virtual orienteering competition - The Lockdown Orienteering Easter Championships. Comprising of 12 challenges over the weekend to test many of the different skills involved with orienteering like routechoice and map memory as well as races using the orienteering computer game Catching Features. At the end of the weekend an overall winner will be crowned.
There will also be JK inspired challenges during the weekend with links to classic JK races over the competitions 50 year history.
