As of 29 May 2020, Orienteering Wellington and Orienteering NZ have agreed to tentatively reschedule this year’s NZ National Orienteering Championships to Labour Weekend, 23-26 October 2020.

This follows the 17 March postponement of Nationals at Easter 2020 and relies on all of New Zealand remaining at COVID-19 Alert Level 1 or lower from Friday 29 July until the event weekend.

We advise people who are keen to attend to note the dates but hold off booking travel until entries re-open and further details are confirmed.

A full refund is available to those registrants who had paid to attend at Easter and who cannot or choose not to attend at Labour Weekend.

Keep up to date by subscribing to our Nationals newsletter. We’ll let you know as soon as we have a new date.

We won’t use your email address for anything other than communicating about Nationals. For more information see our privacy statement.

Stay safe everyone!
