Event Details

The information below applies to Sunday 30th May on Stapeley / Rorrington.

Courses and Entry

There will be 8 courses.

Due to Covid restrictions and commitments to the Landowners we are limiting the number of competitors to 350.

Entry is pre-entry only via Fabian4. There will be No Entry on the Day.

As this event incorporates the Midland Area Championships, entry will be by Age Class and restricted to BOF members.

The table below shows the mapping of Age Classes to the Courses.

The Midlands Area Championships are only open to members of the clubs within the West Midlands, East Midlands and East Anglian Orienteering Associations. Initially Fabian4 will give preference to members of these clubs.

The intention now is for Entries to open on Fabian4 to members of these clubs on or about 30th April. Then, subject to the limit of 350 entrants not having been reached, entries to the event will then be open to BOF members of any club from 10th May.

To be eligible to win one of the Midlands Area Championship trophies you must be a member of British Orienteering, registered via one of the clubs which are part of the WMOA, EMOA or EAOA and enter your appropriate L/A Age Class.
