VHI 2021 Cancelled

Unfortunately it has been impossible to organise the VHI 2021 Weekend on November 6th/7th as had been hoped. Apologies to those who may have made special efforts to attend selection races.

It is still hoped that England will be able to send a team to Interland 2022, including Vets as usual.

Interland 2021

With regret, England will not participate in Interland 2021 next February in Belgium. The conditions and national restrictions (including France and Belgium as well as England) in a few months’ time regarding events and travel are at best unpredictable, and at worst would make travelling impossible. This makes the organisational and financial risks of planning conditional participation too high and therefore unacceptable. Let us look forward to running in sunlit forests, hopefully next summer, and then at Interland 2022 hosted by FRSO (in southern Belgium).

Interland 2021

Interland 2021 is on 28 February in the complex woods of Kattenbos, near Lommel in the very north east of Belgium. Orienteering Vlaanderen and the HAMOK club are the hosts. Besides Interland’s regular teams, we expect a team from Luxembourg to take part. The first bulletin is HERE. Once the way ahead for orienteering competition in UK in 2020 is clearer, selection policies will be published, to raise a team of 42 spanning age groups from W and M14 to W and M65.
