Summer Series Up and Running – Here’s How It Works (Updated Jan 1 2021)

Victoria has moved into its “Covid Safe Summer”, and the good news for orienteering is that we can have groups of up to 100, so we can cater for more of you.  As of January 1, there is no requirement to pre-enter, and signup sheets are no longer in use. If allowed outdoor gathering numbers are reduced again, online pre-entry will be reinstated.

Visiting or returned from interstate? Please comply with Victorian government restrictions for interstate travellers. If you are required to isolate as a result of interstate travel, you must not attend a Victorian orienteering event. Refer to
