In 2020 Covid-19 challenges made it impossible for Hawkes Bay Orienteering Club to host the New Zealand Secondary School (NZSS) Championships. This was a huge disappointment for the organising committee who had put a phenomenal amount of time into the event only to have to cancel it as New Zealand was going in and out of lockdown.
In 2021 Wellington Orienteering Club was scheduled to host the NZSS Champs but has agreed for the event to return to Hawkes Bay. Changes on the event website are still being made, but the event will now take place as follows:
Friday 23rd July – Long
Saturday 24th July – Short
Sunday 25th July – Relay
More information will follow when the event website is up-and-running.
