The rules of the competition are described fully in British Orienteering Competition Rule J, available here.


Scoring is based on position as shown below. A competitor’s overall score will be their best X scores from the Y events held. If events are cancelled, the number of scoring events may be reduced accordingly (but always at least 50% of the races actually held).

1st place 50 points, 2nd place 49 points, 3rd 48, 4th 47, 5th 46, until 50th place 1 point.

3 from classes M/W 16 to M/W 21,
3 from classes M/W 35 to M/W 45,
3 from classes M/W 50 to M/W 55,
3 from classes M/W 60+,
plus any 3 additional scores.
