JK 2019 Closing Date Fast Approaching!

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

Pre-entries close on Sunday 24th March, just a few days away. Entry on the Day is available only for limited colour classes; all championship classes must be pre-entered. So if you have not yet entered, you really need to do so now.

A quick reminder about this year’s JK is given below.

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 International Orienteering Federation (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.

Just a few days away, pre-entries close on Sunday 24 March

There will be two Trail Orienteering (TrailO) events: TempO on Friday, and PreO on Saturday. Friday’s TempO will be within walking distance of that day’s event centre; Saturday’s PreO is a short drive away (4km, max 15 min). The JK 2019 TrailO competitions will also be the first British events ever to be part of the European Cup in Trail Orienteering.

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.
