DENMARK sets a full team of 6 women and 6 men, and we will be waiting with excitmenet for the announcement of the names of these 12 runners, who will be selected after the selection races in the second weekend of June. 

The JWOC 2019 Tour is still open for entries - check the tab 'JWOC 2019 Tour' above for more information, and book your spot on the O-camp (cancelled because of too few registrations) and order one of the cool O-shirts (25th May is last chance) while you are at it!

Problems with Eventor

Submitted by Dorthe Hansen on Wed, 15/5/2019 - 08:35

We are having problems with Eventor.

It has been shown to be possible to enter without being marked for accreditation, and for some, to enter after the deadline.

All nations will therefore receive a letter within a couple of days, where we will ask that you check that the entries are correct.

Who are your hosts?

The organizing team have all the skills needed.

OK Pan Aarhus and Silkeborg Orienteringsklub
The clubs are the two largest clubs in Denmark, with a combined total of more than 600 members. Both clubs have many young runners, and have for many years set a high focus on training young people. Over time, both clubs have contributed many members to both junior and senior world championships teams.

Both clubs were involved in organising the senior World Championships in 2006, and have since organised various Danish championships and masses of local races.

The clubs’ members have the skills needed to arrange international championships, and also have easy access to participants’ views and attitudes. So we hope we will have put the event together in a way that will appear unique to the participants, both in sporting and social respects.

It is fantastic that many more than 200 members are prepared to use part of their summer holidays to contribute to organising JWOC 2019 and the JWOC Tour.

The Organising Committee hope that all volunteers will find that their contribution is important, that there is a good spirit and that we get to know our club colleagues in a new way.

When the organisers are having a good time together, we are convinced that this will have an impact on the participants’ experiences.

See you soon!

Bulletin 3 correction

In Bulletin 3 the number of controls for the men's and women's sprint courses had been interchanged. A new version of Bulletin 3 with the correct numbers has been uploaded.

Bulletin 3 has now been published

Submitted by Dorthe Hansen on Wed, 3/4/2019 - 09:00

In Bulletin 3 (PDF) you will find the detailed programme for JWOC week, and you can see where all the arenas will be situated.
In addition there is information about accommodation options – and very much more to help with your planning.

We look forward to welcoming all teams and supporters in just 3 months’ time!

Training in Aarhus and Silkeborg, Spring 2019

Training camp

Several clubs have already visited for training in preparation for JWOC 2019, and in March and April there will be even more.

Morten Kjær is putting a huge amount of work into coordinating and applying for forest permissions, planning courses, setting out controls and fetching them in again.

In March the Danish juniors will be coming, along with a big group of Norwegian juniors, runners from Huskvarna in Sweden and a smaller German group.

In addition, in April there will be a small Finnish group, and both Belgium and Italy have indicated that they will be coming.

It’s great that so many want to come and see what the Danish Lake District terrain is like. We are grateful for the good collaboration we have with Naturstyrelsen Søhøjlandet – the regional forest authority – which manages by far the majority of forests we are using.

Looking for accommodation?

Submitted by Jonathan Elvø Hansen on Tue, 19/3/2019 - 22:00

We have updated the Accommodation-page with additional options for staying in the Silkeborg/Aarhus area prior to the event. There are plenty of options ranging from hostels to hotels, campsites and holiday homes.

During the event we suggest that JWOC participants stay at the Event Centre and Tour participants sign up for the O-camp.
