VHI 2012 Selection Policy
England Vets Selection Policy for VHI 2012, Ireland June 16/17th
In 2012 the England team for the Veteran Home Internationals will be selected using the results of the following races:
Big Moor Level B, 5th Feb (SYO)
Furnace Ponds Level B, 4th March (GO)
Midland Champs, 11th March, Foxley (HOC)
British Middle Distance Champs, 25th March, Strensall Common (EBOR)
JK Day 2, 7th April, Dunalastair
JK Day 3, 8th April, Craig a’Barns
Orienteers need to compete in at least two of these races to be considered. Greater weight will be given to the results of the JK
If competitors run up then their results will be taken into account on a minutes/k basis.
On occasions a competitor may be recovering from injury or illness, and know beforehand that he/she will not have a good result in a selection race. In such circumstance, the competitor should let a selector know in advance, and then his/her result in that race will not be considered.
In general a ‘retired’ or ‘disqualified’ will be taken to be the equivalent of a very poor run: those wishing to be selected should take every precaution to avoid mispunching in a selection race.
At the Level B events, Vets wishing to be considered should run the course designated for their class by the organising club. If no class/colour linking is given in entry details then Vets should enter as follows:
Brown: M35, M40
Short Brown: M45, M50
Blue: M55, M60, W35, W40
Short Blue: M65, W45, W50
Green: W55, W60
Short Green: W65
Selectors: Jackie Hallett (BOK), Andy Hemsted (HOC, Chair), Tim Tett (SYO)
