Almost a year has passed since the IOA marked the lack of IOC 2020 with a virtual relay, they never thought we would be in a similar place a year later.

This weekend the IOA will be running the IOC Virtual Relay again. The plan is to give competitors a little more flexibility this year and run at any point on Saturday 1st May or Sunday 2nd May, submitting your entries by Sunday evening.

They are hoping to beat last years record entry of over 200 runners. You run, jog or walk a 2km circular route – it is important that you finish where you start. No maps or navigating required!

So why not join in this weekend with the IOC Virtual Orienteering Relay event. Full details are listed below.

Teams consist of three runners and run times will be graded according to their age category. This is explained further here. By using age grading we hope that all your members will benefit and every member of your club from the youngest to the oldest member will join in the fun!

There is also the possibility for each participant to enter their run for a second team with friends or family from different clubs under the mixed category.

There is a link to the google entry form here which must be completed by each team member, ensuring the team name is consistent! Entry deadline is Friday 30th April at midnight.
