VHI 2017 – Selection Policy
In 2017 the England team for the Veteran Home Internationals will be selected using the results of the following races:
Northern Champs, Sunday 26th Feb, LOC Bigland
Midland Champs, Sunday 26th March, OD Bentley Woods
JK Middle, Saturday 15th April, SEOA Ambersham
JK Long, Sunday 16th April, SEOX St Leonards and Holmbush
British Champs, Saturday 6th May, LOC High Dam
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 and BOC.
If competitors run up then their results will be taken into account on a minutes/km basis.
On occasions a competitor may be recovering from injury or illness, and know beforehand that he/she may not perform well in a selection race. In such circumstance, the competitor should let a selector know in advance together with their wishes regarding the inclusion of their result for selection purposes.
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.
Selectors: Jackie Hallett (BOK), Andy Hemsted (HOC, Chair), Tim Tett (SYO)
