Welcome to JK2016

Latest news

Day 1 complete


An excellent day racing in the sunshine at Leeds. Results are now up on the SI website. See you at Wass tomorrow! 

Only a few more days


The snow has almost gone and the sun was out at Kilnsey at the weekend.


Yorkshire and Humberside orienteers look forward to welcoming you to the JK in Yorkshire over the Easter weekend.  Let us hope that the sun shines like it did yesterday. The weather forecast is a bit mixed, but not too bad at the moment.

One plea from the organisers: PLEASE car share as much as you can.  Our original car parking plans, especially at Kilnsey and Wass, were ruined by the rain in December and January and the fields are still unusable.  This has put pressure on our reserve areas, so as much car sharing as possible will be a great help to everyone.

See you in Yorkshire!

Final details - amendments


There are two updates so far:

  • Control description sheet dimensions for Day 1 added.
  • Day 2 - map sizes for courses 5 - 10 have been corrected to A4, not A3.

Final event programme published


The final version of the event programme, which reflects the information currently on the web pages, is available for download. Any subsequent changes will be listed on the Programme page, as a news item and on Twitter and Facebook.

Bulletin 2 published


Bulletin 2 for the World Ranking Events is now published on the Bulletins page.



To comply with the British Orienteering O-Safe Policy, any juniors or at-risk adults who do not want their photographs published should email their name and bib number to photos@claro-orienteering.org.uk before the event.

Professional photos at JK2016


We are delighted that Chris Spencer from ActivNorth Photography will again be providing a professional photo service at the JK. You might well see Chris in the competition area. As in previous years, he will post pictures on the ActivNorth website.

Robert Lines will also be taking photos for British Orienteering. We will post details and links to the sites on the Photos page together with links to any other photo albums. Photographers should ensure they read and comply with the guidance on photography in the event programme. If you want your photos linked from this page please email details to photos@claro-orienteering.org.uk.
