23st 24-h Thuringian Orienteering Relay
May27 - 29, 2022

In about 3 weeks the legendary Thuringian 24-hour-orienteering takes place. Until now 166 teams are registered and many of the participants are glad to be part of the upcoming special event. We are happy, that the competition can take place under normal conditions, after we needed to postpone it to 2022.

Here are some important information around the 24-hour-orienteering:

Because of the local conditions in Meiningen it was necessary to improve the rules.

The changes in the rules are explained in the following sentences. As you may remember every team (12hour und 24hour) started with 6 Theme Courses (TH). The first course will be a difficult course (TH1). After that the remaining 5 theme courses can be run in any desired order. In the competition the courses will be run in the known order: daytime courses, twilight courses, night courses and at the end one final course.

The courses with high orienteering level will get the abbreviation H for hard. The other courses with low orienteering level will have the abbreviation E for easy.

The new rules are here.


Because of the uncertain situation around Corona and insufficient planning security we decided together with the partners from Meiningen to shift the 23rd Thuringian 24-Hour-Orienteering to 2022.

The new event date will be the weekend 27.-29. May 2022. We are happy to welcome you 2022 in Meiningen.

The 23rd Thurigian 24-Hour-Orienteering will be held in less than 5 month. Therefore we have arranged an online entry starting form 10th of January via the O-Manager portal.
If we must cancel the event because of the external circumstances, you will get back a part of your already paid start fees.

The administration fee will be:

12- and 24-hour-relay-team: 30€ per team
Youth-relay-team: 0€ per team

When the thuringian 24-hour-orienteering-relay takes place, then please observe the then valid Corona-regulations.

The organisation team will be happy about your numerous entries and wish you a happy new year.


Because of the uncertain situation around Covid-19 we will announce by the end of January, if 2021 the 23rd Thuringia 24-Hour-Orienteering will take place or will be shifted by one year to 2022. We will discuss this in our organization team and with the officials form on-site. We ask for your patience.
In the beginning of February 2021 we open the online-entry, if we decide positive regarding holding the event.

We wish you a happy New Year and health with a lot of orienteering for 2021.
