WRE application forms for season 2012 available

Dear member federations,

Please find attached the WRE application forms for season 2012. The forms can also be found on the IOF website: Choose discipline menu -> Event Organising / Event Application forms.  A brief summary of details to be considered with regard to WREs:

Foot orienteering:

- A separate form should be completed for each event

- The name of the IOF Event Adviser must be submitted at least 6 months prior to the competition

- WRE Guidelines text in bold has mandatory status


Mountain bike orienteering:WRE MTBO, MTB O Major


- Each federation is allowed to apply for a maximum of two WREs. The IOF MTB Orienteering Commission would prefer events on a weekend or in conjunction with a multi-day event. The attached calendar outlines the dates of major IOF mountain bike orienteering events during season 2012.

- The deadline for applications is now at end of September. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.

- The IOF Adviser is required to have a license in mountain bike orienteering (should there be problems in finding a MTBO Adviser, please contact me).

- After the event application has been approved, all changes in the particularities of an event are subject to the IOF MTB Orienteering Commission’s approval


Ski orienteering:

- A separate form should be completed for each event


NB! The IOF Event Adviser must be independent from the organizing team - he/she cannot be the contact or results contact person.


Please send all applications to [email protected] by 30 September 2011. I am happy to help with any WRE related questions.


Kind Regards,


Riikka Tolkki
