POSTPONED – A weekend of Pure Orienteering Theatre – 5th-7th February 2022

Red Light Update

With todays announcement that all of New Zealand will move into the COVID-19 protection framework red setting we sadly must confirm that Super City Sprints will be postponed. As stated in our entry policies, the event can only go ahead in green or orange levels.

We are working with event partners and stakeholders to confirm a suitable reschedule date and will communicate this once finalised.

Competitors will have the option to defer entry to said new date or opt to cancel their entry for a full refund. Details on this process will be communicated within a week of todays announcement.
