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.
There are a variety of levels of events for orienteers to take part in. Details of events from neighbouring clubs can be found on the Events page on this web-site. Details of all events can be found on the British Orienteering web-site.
Colour Coding / Technical Difficulties
Orienteering courses range from very easy (TD1) to very hard (TD5) and are usually colour coded. A brief summary of the differences between each of those five levels can be found in this document.
