What is Lockdown Orienteering?
Real orienteering is cancelled. We wanted to create an orienteering challenge anyone could take part in from their home – and so Lockdown Orienteering was born: a series of online challenges to test your orienteering skills and knowledge against people from anywhere in the world, while you wait for real orienteering to return.
The Easter Championships was our first Lockdown Orienteering event, with 500 people taking part, including the two most successful orienteers of all time: Thierry Gueorgiou and Simone Niggli. More than 20 countries were represented from across the globe, including New Zealand, Japan, South Africa and many European countries.
Our Easter Champion was Casper Skepp of Sweden, and you can find a report on the Easter Championships here.
Our second competition was the Sprint Weekend, testing many of the elements involved in sprint orienteering. Malthe Poulsen of Denmark was victorious in the overall ranking. Read the weekend report here.
