The British Sprint Championships Weekend 2021, Skelmersdale, Lancashire

Report by Norman Hall, Event Co-ordinator and member of Deeside Orienteering Club

The British Sprint Championships Weekend, postponed from June 2020, is now provisionally scheduled for the weekend of August 21st/22nd 2021.

Although on the British Orienteering fixtures, the Weekend has aprovisional status at the moment.  West Lancashire Borough Council will not give permissions for the events until they are sure that national Covid lockdown arrangements, due to end in June 2021, will allow it.

The Organising and Planning teams are continuing with their work to have everything in place for when those permissions are granted.

The British Sprint Championships website can be found here and will be updated as and when further information is available.

It is hoped to have entries provisionally open later this month as long as the 17 May lockdown phase ending goes to plan.
