SWOC Orienteering League

We are pleased to announce that during 2018 SWOC will be holding its inaugural orienteering League. This will be based on eight local fixtures held during the year, with your best five results counting. A simple scoring system will be used for the league with 50 points for first, 49 points for second etc.

 Courses counting in the SWOC Orienteering League will be Blue, Green and Orange (no league for yellow, but yellow courses will be provided).  After the final event at Forest Fawr we hope to hold a social and prize giving.

 On the Blue

  • Overall;
  • 50 and over; and
