“Based on the latest advice from Public Health England, https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public to limit the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the BOC2020 organisers in discussion with British Orienteering have decided we cannot allow anyone to participate in or attend BOC 2020 who has travelled from or via the following countries in the 14 days leading up to the event (6th March – 20th March 2020):  China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau.  We will offer a full refund to anyone who has already entered the event as of the date of this notice who this affects, and therefore they can no longer attend.  We would urge anyone to whom this applies to retain boarding passes and get in touch with the BOC Entries Secretary Nigel Saker (entries@theboc.org.uk), regarding an entry refund.”

Please note the following regarding start time preferences:

  • Elites – Start times for all competitors in M/W18, 20 & 21 elite classes will be seeded as per the requirements in Appendix A, seeded blocks. Start time preferences will be ignored subject to the following: An athlete may request a start time in a lower ranked group than that to which they are entitled (e.g. in order to allow for a split start time). They may not request one in a higher ranked group. Please bear this in mind if entering with other non-elites.
  • Split starts - The arrangement of the Starts means that many parents will be at the Near Start whilst their children et al are at the Far start. For this reason, where split starts are requested, the first person to start will be allocated a set start time but the second person will be allocated an open start. This means that they will have to wait for an open start slot (and meet any seeding requirements.), but we hope that the flexibility provided will be appreciated. However, if any split starter is entering M/W Elite they will be subject to the arrangements for those on M/W Elite as outlined above.
  • Helpers – We would welcome all offers of help. Please still provide a start time preference, which we will attempt to accommodate in conjunction with helping (e.g. if you prefer to start late we will find an early helping job, and vice versa), and provide you with an allocated start time.
  • Everyone else – Indicate your start time preference.
