Jan Kjellström International Festival of Orienteering 2019

19th April - 22nd April - entries now open!

South Central Orienteering Association clubs and their members very much look forward to welcoming orienteers, families and friends to Southern England next Easter for the JK International Festival of Orienteering.

Three of the four competition areas are very close together, near to Farnborough / Aldershot, whilst the Long race on Sunday is near Newbury (an easy hour’s drive away). Parking and starts are expected to be less than 500m from Assembly on all days.

Friday’s Sprint race and Saturday’s Middle-Distance race are IOF World Ranking Events. In addition, all three individual days will form part of 2019’s UK Elite Orienteering League and the UK Orienteering League. All four days will use Emit touch-free punching.

There will be two Trail Orienteering (TrailO) events: TempO on Friday, and PreO on Saturday. Both will be within walking distance of the Foot Orienteering event centres. The JK19 TrailO competitions will also be the first British events ever to be part of the European Cup in Trail Orienteering. We very much hope that a good proportion of FootO competitors will take part in the TrailO competitions.

Details of JK 2019 can be seen on the JK website.

Entries for JK2019 open via Fabian4 on Monday 26 November 2018.
