2021 British Orienteering Junior Selection Races - entries are open

On behalf of Paul Murgatroyd, Head Coach for Talent

The 2021 British Orienteering selection race programme for the juniors has now been finalised and entries are currently open for these races via the SportIdent and Fabian entry systems.

There will be a programme of three selection races, with a junior only (M/W 16-20) sprint selection race, held in Keswick town on the evening of Friday 4th June, kicking off the weekend. The series will also include the British Middle Championships at Summerhouse Knott on Saturday 5th June and the Northern Championships (Long race) at High Dam on Sunday 6th June. Entries for the sprint race are via SportIdent and for the other two races via Fabian.

The results of the races will inform selections to the Great Britain team for the Junior World Orienteering Championships in Turkey and the European Junior Orienteering Championships in Lithuania and will also assist in making decisions on the invitations to the British Orienteering Badaguish and Pre-JWOC summer camps and the make-up of the Talent & Performance Squads for the 2021/22 season.
