England Vets Selection Policy for Interland 2011
Classes M/W40 –M/W65 will be selected considering the results of these events:
WSX: 25th Sept, Wareham, first day of the Caddihoe Chase
EPOC: 24th Oct, Stoodley Pike
HOC: 14th Nov, Postenplain
plus BOC2010 and JK2010
Those wishing to be considered should compete in at least one of the three autumn selection events. Very good results in two or three of these events will lead to selection; competitors who do not have such results will be judged on the basis of BOC2010 and JK2010 as well as their autumn results.
Orienteers who change age-class in 2011 may be chosen for their new age-class if the selectors are aware of the change, and if their results in their 2010 age-class are strong enough, unless they have informed the selectors that they only wish to be considered for their 2010 ageclass.
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.
In the autumn selection races, competitors are requested to run as follows:
Short Brown M45, M50
Blue M55, M60 W40
Short Blue M65 W45, W50
Green W55, W60
Short Green W65
Vets who elect to run a longer course will have their results considered on a mins/k basis.
England Vets Selectors: Jackie Hallett (BOK), Tim Tett (SYO), Andy Hemsted (HOC, Chair).
