The British Sprint Championships Weekend 2021, Skelmersdale, Lancashire

Update Report by Norman Hall, Event Co-ordinator and member of Deeside Orienteering Club

Provisional Entries Opening Soon.

The British Sprint Championships Weekend, postponed from June 2020, is now provisionally scheduled for the weekend of 21 and 22 August 2021.

West Lancashire Borough Council Event Safety Advisory Group met on Friday 21 May 2021 and have now approved the running of the two Sprint events on the proposed weekend.

As long as the National Covid Lockdown Road Map goes to plan for June 2021, West Lancashire Borough Council will give final permissions after June 21st.

With this positive step forward, the organising team are proposing to open entries for both the Relay and Individual Championships on a provisional basis as early as possible after the beginning of June.

The Organising and Planning teams are continuing with their work to have everything in place for when those permissions are granted.
