A box seems to be empty or miss links or info – Try the Refresh Arrow!

Every ‘box’ on live orienteering have a refresh-arrow. If you want to be sure you have the latest updates in the box you click on the refresh-arrow.

Why do you need to do this? LIVE orienteering need to cope with 20 000+ users that follow the events simultaneously, all over the world. To be able to manage fast response times and keep the server loads down and for security reasons we use a content delivery network (CDN). This have several advantages but also the effect that some updates are not immediately updated in your browser. A typical event day we do 10 updates of  on live orienteering. If you want to make sure that you have the latest information, click on the refresh arrow. We also have decided not to ‘push’ out updates every time a box is updated to lower the pressure on the system and internet.
