The AOA's organising working group today confirmed that, in order to provide COVID-19 assurance, this year's Inter Corps Orienteering Championships would definitely be split across two separate days:
Saturday 28 November: Night Event (Inter Corps & Army Individual) on Long Valley North, based on Tweseldown Racecourse (subject to agreement). In conjunction with Southern Night Championships, organised by BAOC.
Wednesday 2 December: Day Event (Inter Corps & Army Individual) also on Long Valley North, with civilian entries permitted as a normal Wednesday event.
Team constructs are to be as normal (at Annex E), allowing for different people to run at night (e.g. 4 Men to count for Men) and by day (e.g. 5 Men to count) (but only 6 prizes per team!).
The impact on e.g. Army Reservists to be able to compete on Wednesday without taking leave from their civilian jobs is understood, and regretted. It is emphasised that this is a one-off decision in the current COVID-19 situation. It is specifically not intended to be the model for future years.
