[Try out the competitions for yourself] With 500 participants from 20 countries taking part and 6 different countries in the Top 6 overall, the multi-stage virtual orienteering competition Easter Lockdown Orienteering has been the biggest international virtual orienteering competition so far in this special Covid-19 period. 

That Grand Final winner was Casper Skepp of Sweden with second place going to Theo Fleurent of France and third the Croatian Matija Razum. Many top orienteers were participating, with the “King of Orienteering” Thierry Gueorgiou finishing down in 8th place. The race was livestreamed, and you can rewatch the action here.

Competitors had to complete a number of challenges that tested their orienteering skills and knowledge, using several different orienteering challenges: The Routechoice Game for simple urban route choice challenges, RunningWild for more complex urban routechoice challenges, the Catching Features orienteering game, a Control Description Game, Photo Memory Orienteering, Orienteering Quiz and Streetview Orienteering. After the 12 Stages the top 6 battled it out in the Grand Final, a mass start race with the winner of that race claiming the overall Easter Championship title.

Interested to participate next time: Another event is coming up soon, this time an urban only event (registration on the Lockdown Orienteering website):
