Permissions received for British Sprint Championships to proceed in full

The British Sprint Championships Weekend

21 August & 22 August 2021

Skelmersdale, Lancashire

Update July 20th 2021

With the Government lifting of the majority of restrictions, we have now received permissions from West Lancashire Borough Council for the Sprint Championships Weekend to proceed in full.

The entry closing date for both the Relay and Individual events is midnight on Sunday 8 August, the end of the Scottish Six Day week. Entries online only at Fabian4.

The Organising and Planning teams have continued with their work during this uncertain time and are now on the final push to have everything in place for a great weekend of technical urban sprint orienteering.

Some social distancing measures may still be in place for the event and we would ask everyone competing to follow the current British Orienteering Guidelines during the weekend.

The British Sprint Championships website is here and will continue to be updated as and when further information is available.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Megan Keith finishes 4th in the Final of European U20's 3,000m

Megan Keith came within just three hundredths of a second of a superb medal moment at the Euro U20 Champs in Estonia.

Instead, the Inverness Harriers athlete had to settle for a fine 3000m track PB  of 9.16.50 and just 3/100th of a second from a medal in the searing heat of Tallinn.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops pumping blood around the body and vital organs, due to an abnormal heart rhythm. It can happen to anyone, at any time.

  • 60,000 people have a sudden cardiac arrest within the community every year in the UK.
  • 12 each week are under the age of 35.
  • Only 1 in 10 survive.

If effective action is taken within the first minute, it can treble chances of survival.
