Airienteers are delighted to invite you to the 2022 British Night Orienteering Championships weekend, with two fantastic events on the ever popular Ilkley Moor.

The British Night Championships will take place on the evening of Saturday 19th February 2022 on the heart of Ilkley Moor.

There will be a companion long-distance event using Ilkley and Burley Moors on Sunday 20th February 2022. You can find details for that event here: https://www.aire.org.uk/events...

Both events will be part of the UK Orienteering League (UKOL)

Please take particular care to read the safety information for this event - there is mandatory kit that must be carried at this event.

News and updates

Update 19/02/22 (PM)

Weather: There is a Yellow warning for this afternoon until 3pm and there has been heavy snow in Leeds and Bradford, which is now easing.

At present, the event is ON. The main roads are clear and traffic is moving, although slowly. We strongly advise setting off early and allowing extra travel time and would advise parking in the central Ilkley car parks and walking up to St Margaret's Church Hall, rather than attempting to park on the back roads up towards the moor.

 

Good news is that becks on the moor are passable and safe and will not affect the competition.

There is a significant windchill on the moor. Carrying Mobile phones strongly recommended and carrying extra layers (e.g. waterproof overtrousers, gloves, mid-layer) in addition to mandatory kit is also recommended.

Update 18/02/22
The events are ON! The forecast for tomorrow is not too bad, but it is awful for Sunday. Please come prepared and we wish you a safe journey.
