Our aim is to provide some orienteering fun and competition during these difficult times. We hope you enjoy the competition!
Important: All times are British Summer Time (BST), which is GMT+1 and CEST-1.
To allow us to finalise results each day, you MUST complete all stages and submit your scores by the times on the main event page.
If you’re late submitting your score, you’ll lose 50 points (unless your lateness is caused by the organisers).

Age classes, categories and prizes
- 10-stage (with Catching Features)
- 7-stage (without Catching Features)
There are prizes for the winners in all age class/category combinations.
You can find further information about Catching Features on the stage information pages.
We recommend using a desktop computer or laptop for some stages, rather than a phone or tablet.
We also recommend using a mouse, rather than a touchpad, especially if you’re playing Catching Features.
Results and scoring
You’ll use the results system both to upload your results (for stages that don’t do this automatically) and to see your position in the overall rankings.
We’ll award points for each stage by ranking your performance against the other competitors. First place gets 1000 points, second place 999 points, third place 998 points, and so on. If you fail to complete a stage, you get 0 points.
To get the overall results in each category, we’ll add up the points from your best stages:
- For the 10-stage category, your best 8 stages count towards your total points.
- For the 7-stage category, your best 6 stages count towards your total points.
The person with the highest total points is the winner!
If you miss the deadline for submitting your score for a stage, you’ll lose 50 points (unless your lateness is caused by the organisers).
We’ll post final results each day at about 20:00 BST or as soon as possible afterwards.
We’ve given everyone a competition number to help us manage the results. You can find your competition number on the main event page on Wednesday. If you’ve taken part in our previous competitions, you should have the same number.
Just for fun! Why not print and wear your number bib, then take a photo and post it on the Facebook group/send it to us? Find the number bib template here.
Honesty is crucial! In some stages it’s possible to cheat, but we’re trusting that you won’t. For each stage, your first attempt is the one that counts. #fairplay
We’ll be hosting a live daily roundup at 20:00 BST each evening, where we’ll discuss the day’s stages with competitors and course setters. We’ll also be showing The Grand Final of the 10 stage competition on Sunday night. Link here for all days.
We’ve created a new Facebook group for Classic Weekend competitors. Many people who took part in the Easter Champs said that it was one of the best parts of the weekend – a way to get a bit of that big event atmosphere!
Remember to wait until after the deadline for each day before posting anything that might help people on that day’s stages.
If you’re not on Facebook, we’ll post any announcement we make in the Facebook group on our Twitter account, which you don’t need an account to access.
If you have general questions, it’s best to post them on the Facebook group, because others might be able to help you more quickly than we can (we might be sleeping!). Alternatively, you can contact us here or by email, please include your competitor number.
This competition is designed to give you all some orienteering fun! If you do need to make a protest, you can email us and we’ll consider it – but the organiser’s decision is final!
