The planning team are hard at work, but still found time to send us some intriguing pictures of Friday’s sprint area. A tricky school building complex with ramps and canopies galore, dense greenery, water, open space and an awful lot of bricks!
We’ve added some details about SportIdent Air+ contactless punching and how it will be used at the Nationals. Hopefully this helps answer some of your questions!
- SI Air+ is enabled for all events except the sprint, where it is only enabled for the elite M/W21E and M/W20 classes.
- If you don’t have a SportIdent Active Card (SIAC) and enter the M/W21E or M/W20 sprint class, we will loan you one at no cost.
- This is to ensure fairness, so all orienteers in your sprint class will be punching the same way as you.
- You can enter the Nationals with a SIAC or a normal SI card, just enter your SI number on the entries page as usual.
- If you don’t have an SI card, you can arrange to hire one during the entry process.
Entries are now open and close at midnight Friday, 27 March. Don’t leave it too late!
