The Organisers of The British Middle Distance Championships, and Northern Championships, have been pleased with the high volume of entries that has been received to date.
Entries are already exceeding those of previous British Middle Distance Orienteering Championships. This, however, is now causing concerns of a last minute surge in additional entries. With the agreement of British Orienteering, it has been decided to bring the closing date forward to midnight on Friday 7 May 2021, (minimum period of 28 days required under British Orienteering Federation rules). Should the entry level be much greater than expected, this will allow time to introduce any changes to the event to ensure it remains COVID safe (e.g. adding extra starts).
It may be possible to accept entries after this date if there is spare capacity, but this will be at the Organiser’s discretion.
