WELCOME

On behalf of the South East Orienteering Association we are pleased to invite you to the British Orienteering Championships - Individual Long and Team Relays over the weekend of the 26th & 27th March 2022.

After the last minute cancellation of the 2020 championship due to Covid we are pleased to announce that we have managed to rearrange permissions for the competition area, all of which is new to orienteering. Although it has been considered for major events on previous occasions the challenges of obtaining land permission have meant that other areas have been used instead. However, this large and varied area now offers an entirely new challenge for the British Orienteering Championships weekend 2022.

We look forward to seeing you for an exciting weekend of Championship racing.

Helen Errington and Andrew Evans - Joint Weekend Coordinators

VENUE

One thing that has changed is the race Arena. We have a new Arena but once again are able to use the same location for both days, with car parking right next to the Arena

The entrance to the track leading to the Arena for both days is on Highfield Lane, Liphook, Hampshire.

  • Post Code: GU307LQ (just south of)

TRAIL O

It is our aim to hold a TrailO event on Sunday 27th March 2022. However, at this stage there are a number of issues that we need to resolve before we are in a position to open entries. More information when we have it.

EMBARGO

A map of the embargoed area (plus the reserve) is available here

The areas are embargoed for runners wishing to compete in the BOC2022 Long Distance Individual and Team Relay Championships, until the competition is finished. Any attempt to survey or train in the competition terrain is forbidden, unless explicitly permitted by the BOC2022 organiser.
