SYO Local League
- Created on 27 March 2012
- Written by Peter Gorvett
Over the last few years our mid-week events have been part of one of three mini-competitions: Spring Cup, City Cup (formerly Park Races) and Night Cup. We have decided to combine these to create a single SYO local league, running from 1st Jan to 31st December each year. All the events will have three courses: Long and Medium technical and Short - Orange standard.
Autumn/winter fixtures for 2013 to be confirmed at a later date.
The current league table is shown below (we are hoping to include a handicap/most improved orienteer award), the scores will be updated after each event and visible on this page. A list of events that are part of the league is at the bottom of this page.
View the previous year's results here.
Target winning times on long and middle:
- Long middle: 35-50 minutes
- Middle:25-35 minutes
- Sprint: under 25 minutes
Scoring: 50 for win, 47 for 2nd, then 45,44,43,42,41 etc
- Long Course Women Open, Men Open, Men 45+, Men 18
- Medium Course Women Medium , Women 45+, Women 60+, Women 18-, Women 14-, Men 60+, Men 14-
- Short Course Women 12-, Men 12-, Novices (< 6 months experience at first event)
Best eight results to count for experienced orienteers, best four for novices. If you run a shorter or longer course than your class you will score points, but not more than those entered in the correct class.
Comments to PeterGorvett at Hotmail dot co dot uk. Let me know if I have anybody in the worng class or any other errors. And should we try to amalgamate the two women's classes somehow?
