Australian Orienteering Championships Tasmania 2020


the Australian Orienteering Championships is supported by the Tasmanian Government through Events Tasmania

Entries scheduled to open in March 2021 (Keep your Fingers Crossed). 

This date may be revised due to COVID-19. We do not want to take your money until we are certain the event can go ahead. For our event to be viable, we need enough people to feel safe and confident to commit to travel without the threat of restrictions/quarantine. And given we are an island, there also needs to be affordable travel options available (flights or ferry fares!).

To do a hard course and/or to participate in your age class, you will need to enter in advance. But if you do not want to commit to pre-entry, you can enter an easy course on the day.

Before you enter, take note:

Read the Participation FAQS especially if you are new to major orienteering carnivals.

See our Entry Fees & Refund Policies to find out about costs, family discounts, and entry to the Schools Championships. Early Bird Entries open on in March 2021. Regular Entries will apply from TBA – 22 August 2021. Late Entries will be considered and if accepted, a 25% late fee will be charged. To apply Contact Us.

Use the Split Start Times Form when you enter to request special start times due to exceptional circumstances (this includes carer logistics, tight travel times or other reasons).  We will consider but not necessarily grant your request.

A Risk Waiver will need to be completed as part of the entry process.

You will need to register in person before your first event to collect your race number.

When you enter you will need to include your timing device number. You can use an SI Air Card (all events will use SIAC compatible controls) or an SI stick. But the memory on a P Card is limited to 18 controls which will not be enough for some events. Furthermore, only one person can use any particular timing device. So you can not share them between family or friends. Everyone needs their own! If you do not have a timing device you will need to either:

    1. Purchase your own. We recommend you get an SI Air Card. And you can buy these from Aussieogear or WildfireSports; or
    2. Hire an SI Air Card as part of the entry process. But this option is only available during the Early Bird entry period, or until stocks are exhausted. The hire fee will be $15 for the whole carnival irrespective of how many events you enter.
