At the Orienteering New Zealand AGM (held remotely) on 15 April 2020, Georgia Skelton was awarded Mountain Bike Orienteering of the Year.
Georgia was selected to be a member of the NZ team at the Junior Mountain Bike Orienteering World Championship held in Denmark in July, 2019. She was 5th in the sprint race (podium result) and 11th in the middle distance race. Unfortunately she suffered a puncture in the long distance race and had to withdraw. In the massed start race she finished 7th, marginally behind the 6th placed competitor.
She also was selected to represent NZ at the 2019 Junior World Orienteering Championship (foot orienteering) in Denmark.
A great year for Georgia and congratulations on your award.

Please note that courses cross Park roads that may have traffic. Please be alert, and conscious – GIVE WAY to cars and vehicles. The idea here is to have an orienteering run in the safe environment of a local park during lockdown.
There is no manned start or finish. Start and finish at what ever time is convenient. You will need to time yourself. Should any control be missing, please feedback, as they are on public property. The controls are 5cm x 5cm printed Orienteering flags. The controls are only markers so there is nothing to touch or any symbol to write down.
Please feel free to let others know how you went, and what your time is – a bit of fun and running in the park!
