Update 31-March

The Covid-19 Pandemic has great consequences all over Europe and the rest of the world. As the situation is looking presently, we regard it to be impossible to organize a WOC in July with equal and fair training opportunities for everybody. We have therefore decided that:

  • WOC2020 will be postponed to a future date to be announced as quickly as possible.
  • The Selection Races, scheduled to be held on 30-31 May, will be postponed correspondingly. Future dates to be announced.
  • Training Camp 4, scheduled for 11-15 May, will be cancelled.
  • Training Camp 5, scheduled for 1-3 June, is maintained for now. Stay informed on the website.
  • New training opportunities are being planned and will be announced as soon as possible.
  • Bulletin 3, to have been published on 6-April, will appear later – and no later than three months prior to WOC.

For WOC Tour runners, please refer to the WOC Tour page for information.

If you have booked accommodation through the WOC Office, you need not do anything. Information will follow when a new date has been announced.

Thank you for your understanding.

Covid-19, update 25-March (+small addition 29-March)

The situation concerning the COVID-19 Pandemic develops extremely fast. This may potentially affect the planning of WOC2020, and we know it also creates great uncertainty for all of you who are looking forward to visiting WOC2020 either as runners or as guests.

We in the WOC organizing team are monitoring the situation closely and keep contact with the Danish authorities. We are still planning towards a WOC in July, but at same time we recognize the seriousness of the situation, and we are looking into different alternatives in the fall. Hopefully, we shall be wiser within next few weeks, and we shall be able to announce a final decision.

Regarding the WOC Tour we have made the following changes:

  • The Early Bird deadline is postponed to 1-May
  • We encourage you to still make your entries in Orienteering Online, but NOT transfer any payments until you receive notice from the WOC Tour organization.
  • In the event of cancellation or postponement, all fees will naturally be refunded.

We thank you for your understanding and your patience in this challenging situation.
