JK 2019 First Closing Date Fast Approaching!

A reminder about the JK International Festival of Orienteering being held in Southern England this Easter. 

The first closing date, Sunday 13th January, is just a few days away. 

That is the last day when you can take advantage of the best value entry fees.  So now really is the time to enter.

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 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.

The Jk2019 first closing date = Sunday 13 January

Details of JK 2019 can be seen on the JK website.  Please read the notes on the JK2019 website entries page before you start the entry process.
