The MDOC Winter Series

Unfortunately virtually all of the MDOC catchment area is now in Tier 4. The Government rules state that travelling to take exericse should be limited. Only short distance trips are allowed "e.g. to access an open space". In addition British Orienteering have issued instructions that all events and activities in Tier 4 areas should be suspended. We therefore feel that it is impossible to continue the series at the moment. Hopefully it can resume at some point.

However, there are still lots of challenges spread across a wide area and there should be something fairly local to many of you which will allow you to stay within the rules. Explore the 'Challenge Locations' map or the 'Location List' to see what's available.
