British Orienteering via the Rules Group is inviting feedback from members on the orienteering rules it has drafted for 2024.
Please note, as a result there has been a significant change in the order and in the numbering of individual clauses – too many to be able to sensibly mark up.
The key change is that the historical anomaly that Men's and Women's classes had different winning times is addressed. This is in line with the IOF (International Orienteering Federation) policy to equalise men’s and women’s winning times for all age classes and the results of this Summer's well supported consultation - a big thank you to all that contributed.
There are New Courses tables for Long Distance but not Middle and Sprint which were already "done"
The consultation is open until 12 December, 2023 and responses can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org."
