JK2021 expressions of interest survey
Survey closed 30th August 2020.

We hope that you are keeping well and staying safe during this difficult time for everyone. The JK2020 team were very disappointed to have to cancel the event at Easter 2020.

Many of you will be aware that the time from start to finish for planning, organizing and controlling a JK is usually a 2 and a half year period. To this end, the JK2021 organising team are busy with preparations for the four days that we hope will make up the JK 2021 Festival of orienteering in Cornwall next year.

However, with the uncertainty regarding many aspects of delivering orienteering events that are now only just over 6 months away we have to plan for as many possible scenarios as we can think of.

We have prepared a short survey to start to try and find out what orienteers are thinking about with regard to coming to JK2021. This survey will help to inform our provisional plans for Easter 2021.

Thanks for your time to complete this survey.


Best wishes

Roger Hargreaves and Christine Vince
