An map of the embargoed areas is available here.  The areas are all embargoed for runners wishing to compete in the JK, until the competition is finished. Any attempt to survey or train in the competition terrain is forbidden, unless explicitly permitted by the JK coordinator. However - for the sprint area - it is permitted to drive along the roads through the area (such as Council of Europe Boulevard, University Boulevard, Harvard Avenue, Princeton Drive, Tees Barrage Way) prior to the day of the competition. It is also permitted to compete in organised road races or similar with marked routes through the area, such as the Simplyhealth Great Tees 10km and the Stockton Duathlon festival.

All three individual foot-O competitions will be World Ranking Events.

There will also be a Temp-O competition on day 1 at Stockton Riverside, and a Pre-O competition on day 2 in Sneaton Forest.

Entries open on 1st December 2019.
