Risk and Safety
Competitors accept the hazards associated with participating in the event, and that they take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety.
Please note that under the terms of the British Orienteering public liability insurance policy, non-members of British Orienteering are covered for public liability for three events only. After three events, non-members participate at their own risk. However many may already be covered by public liability cover from other insurance, such as their own national orienteering federation’s insurance cover.
Other than the organiser’s liability for causing death or personal injury by negligence, Event Officials will not accept liability for any injury, accident, loss or damage to the competitor or their property that may arise before, during or after the event as a consequence of participation in the event.
