Event footnotes[edit]

  • JK69. The event was held in NEOA but organised by NWOA.[4]
  • JK69. The Relay was to have been held at Slaley but had to be cancelled due to snow. The event was moved to Kielder Forest, Lewisburn Area.[4]
  • JK74. This event was the first British event to attract more than one thousand competitors.[1]
  • JK81. For this year only, the Relay was held on the Sunday i.e. between the two individual days.[8]
  • JK89. At this event there were two deaths. On the Saturday Swedish visitor Stig Gorman (58) of Mariestad died within sight of the finishing line; and on the Sunday Martin Cochrane (81) of Sarum Orienteers died shortly after starting the Orange colour-coded course.[25]
  • JK98. On the Sunday the courses using the Red start were cancelled due to snow. This decision led to a controversy which was discussed in Compass Sport & The Orienteer and also at British Orienteering Federation (BOF) National Office.[46]
  • JK2006. A sprint event was introduced at this event on the Friday, in addition to the usual Training event. This was an attempt to make the sport more 'spectator friendly' and was part of the International Orienteering Federation’s proposal to make the sport an Olympic sport.
