Date-Change-McComb-website-160Orienteering Tasmania regrets to announce that due to the coronavirus pandemic the Australian Orienteering Championships 2020 have been cancelled.

The OT Board has taken this decision because there remains considerable uncertainty about whether it will be possible to hold the Championships this year. These uncertainties include when the restrictions on gatherings of over 100 people will be lifted; when travel restrictions, both within and to Tasmania, will be lifted; and the availability and affordability of flights even when travel restrictions are lifted.

We are not able to delay our decision any longer in the hope that restrictions will be lifted, as this will not allow us sufficient lead-in time to complete the necessary planning to ensure success of the Championships.

With the support of Orienteering Australia and the state associations, Orienteering Tasmania will now host the Australian Championships in 2021, from Saturday 25 September to Sunday 3 October 2021.

For the people who had already entered for this year, you will be contacted directly by OT about entry fee refunds or transfers to 2021. For all the people who won entry fees to the associated Turbo Chook 3 Days (including through the recent OA coaching survey), these will apply for 2021.

“We hope you will celebrate orienteering with us next year when we can all be out and about in the forest doing our sport again,” said Carnival Director Warwick Moore.
