5 events spread throughout the year. An ideal opportunity for
STAG Members to plan & thus indirectly improve both your understanding of the skills being tested when you orienteer & to enjoy the buzz of seeing others enjoy themselves. Registration and Start times
Informal from 11am until 11:59am but will be extended if required.
The format for
Yellow, Orange & Light Green Courses is CROSS COUNTRY i.e. You are instructed which controls you have to visit & in a set order.
The format for SCORE is where you decide the order &
the weighting on controls is based on location & difficulty&
YOU have a time limit to worry about.
Penalties for being late are 10 points off your score for every second over your chosen time limit..
60 minute SCORE - 25 Controls weighted 5 @ 300pts ; 5 @ 400pts ; 5 @ 500pts ; 5 @ 600pts ; 5 @ 700pts.
40 minute SCORE - 25 Controls weighted 5 @ 300pts ; 5 @ 400pts ; 5 @ 500pts ; 5 @ 600pts ; 5 @ 700pts.
Light Green Course - Technically challenging. Likely to be between 3k > 4k. Will use a selection of the 25 Controls listed above.
Orange Course - Technically requires the use of
handrails (paths, fences etc) to navigate but allows corners to be cut.
Control sites adjacent to line features. Will use a selection of the
“300s”, “400” & “500” Control sites from above.
Yellow Course - Technically easy. Requires use of handrails as Orange but Control sites will be on the handrail itself. Entry Details
Via SI Entries with tiered entry fees from 3 weeks before the Event.
Map Overprinting - Everyone receives the same overprinted map showing the Start, Finish & location of the 25 Controls in use with their Code Number shown. For SCORE Competitors the Code shown eg “32” indicates that this Control is worth 300pts; “43” is worth 400 pts etc.with further information about Courses printed on the map. This is an attempt to minimise map wastage. Competitors on Light Green, Orange & Yellow Courses need to uplift a separate Control Description list which will indicate the controls they have to visit.
