Wessex Region Summer League 2022
To encourage local orienteering club members to attend the forthcoming WIM/WSX summer series, we will be running a Summer MapRun League based on participation at these events. Each of the 6 summer series events listed below will include a 60 min score which counts for the Summer MapRun League in addition to free Yellow and Orange line courses, which are designed to encourage first timers & beginners and are part of British Orienteering's Find Your Way initiative.
Although all courses will utilise MapRun, to count for the Summer MapRun League, participants are required to pre-enter via RaceSignUp (cost: Seniors £5, Juniors £2) and undertake their run on the day and time of the actual physical event, with start times between 1100 to 1300. Participants will be provided with a map at the start. Juniors under 16 who wish to participate in the League and hence the 60 min score course must be accompanied.
Event 1: Saturday 23rd April – Sturminster Newton
Event 2: Saturday 14th May – Poole Baiter Park
Week 3: Saturday 11th June – Blandford Stour Meadows
Week 4: Saturday 9th July – Boscombe
Week 5: Saturday 20th August – Moors Valley
Week 6: Saturday 24th September – Blandford Milldown
The highest score for the week will be awarded 50 points, the second highest score 49 points etc with equal scores being ranked on time taken. Your result/position will be based what is recorded in the MapRun App. Only runs that have been recorded on the day and time of the actual physical event will be included. We will publish results on a weekly basis including a cumulative league table. Your highest 3 scores out of the 6 events will count towards your final league position.
In addition, points can be scored as follows:
49 points for any organiser of one of the events, for a maximum of one event
5 bonus points for every non-BOF and non-club member you bring along to an event and who participates in a yellow or orange course (both free of charge with entry on the day). Maximum bonus points per event is 20 and bonus points are only awarded once, i.e., bringing the same person to another summer event does not count. Please e-mail myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) with regard to claiming bonus points with the names of the people you brought along.
PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to be competitive for the British Night Championships in February 2023, you cannot participate in the Moors Valley event in August. This is why we have reduced the number of counting scores to 3 out of 6 events.
Recognising this is a fun league and to encourage wider participation out with the Summer MapRun League for the 60 min score course, there is no PIN on the league course in MapRun. We are relying on competitor’s own sense of fair play not to study and therefore plan their route prior to picking up their map at the start.
