3rd sprint format update

A 3rd sprint race format will be added to the existing individual sprint and mixed sprint relay races in the World Orienteering Championships programme starting 2020.

A development project runs in a full speed with many test races taking place, and the first scheduled official race on 4th October 2018 at the IOF Orienteering World Cup Final in Prague, Czech Republic.

The updated 3rd sprint format documents could be found here:

– 3rd sprint format description;

– Revised allocations of athletes to the QF-heats to prevent that top athletes competing in the same SF-heat;
