June Midweek Score Series(1/4) Midweek Score, Marl PitsWed 05 June, 2019

Local level event

Explanation of Event levels

  • Training events are non competitive events used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport.
  • Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Most clubs run some 'mini series' throughout the year as local mid week events.
  • Regional events attract participants from around the local Region.
  • National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away,
  • Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships or the annual JK competition.



Provisional results are now available.

In the league table, on the MAXI course only, points have been deducted if not taken in the sequence 10s before 15s, before 20s. Only one competitor has been affected by this rule.

On the MIDI course there were a large number of first time orienteers, so an executive decision has been taken NOT to apply the 10s before 15s rule. Thus the MIDI for this week has been run as a normal all controls score event.

See you all next week at Gawthhorpe.
