Hope is still alive for a World Masters Orienteering Championships 2021

Based upon the results of the participation survey recently conducted by the IOF and the WMOC 2021 organisers in Hungary, planning for the event in August continues.

The survey, which was answered by over 1500 prior WMOC participants, indicates a strong interest among many masters athletes to participate at a WMOC this year. Of course there is a lot of understandable caution expressed also, but the overriding conclusion is that there is enough interest to justify going forward.

The organisers also took on board several suggestions from the survey answers and have published a new Bulletin 1.5 with some changes to the entry conditions.

  • The organiser will hold the event regardless of the number of participants. In other words the only reason for a potential cancellation will be if the local authorities in Hungary should not allow the event to go on.
  • Entries can be cancelled prior to June 1 with a full 100% refund.
  • If the organiser has to cancel WMOC 2021, all paid fees (minus banking fees) will be refunded. No EUR 30 deduction.
