Update 30 May 2022: Changes to entry cut off

We had to change the entry cut off for the BF5Days by a few days. Last day for entries is now the 10 July 2022. After this we will only accept late entries at the event days, if there are still maps and start slots left. Late entries at the event are charged the current entry fee plus 5 Euro late entry fee. To avoid paying for late entry, best just sign up before the 10th of July! Changes to your category or your SI number can still be made until the start of the first competition day without any extra charge. To avoid any potential queues at the event, it would be best to do changes directly in Orienteering Online until the 10th of July, or after that, to send us an e-mail.


BF5Days orienteering shirts

We already received many order for our BF5Days shirts. The first shipment has already arrived in Munich. Originally, we stated May first as the deadline for ordering merchandise but because everything went very smoothly with our first larger order, we can now accept orders until the 19 June 2022 and still guarantee that your shirts will be available for pick up at the event. If you still want to order a shirt, here is the link to our webshop.

In an earlier update we listed information how our map maker will assign symbols to certain type of rocks and boulders, here are the detail: To be able to better assign rock formations in the forest to symbols on the map, Ingo, our map maker came up with a specific classifications for some rocks. This is described in detail here with photos and examples; it will also be listed again in the event brochure.

Please remember that we have published already the day to day information (Link hier) which gives you a good idea about the competition area but also what’s planned each day.

Important: You can still change your category on Orienteering Online (link here) even after you have signed up at no extra cost. So you can now study the course lengths and then decide if you want to change your category!
