Classes M/W40–M/W65 will be selected considering the results of these events:

BOC2012 (as announced in Bulletin 1)
Northern Champs, 19th May (as announced in Bulletin 1)
Croeso 2012 Day 4, Thurs 26th July, Llynnoedd Teifi, POW
The Southern Champs, Sun 23rd Sept, Epping, CHIG
Hameldon, Sun 7th Oct, PFO
November Classic, Sun 4th Nov, SOC
Eyam Moor, Sun 25th Nov, DVO

Those wishing to be considered should compete in at least two of these events, At first we will be considering only those who have good results in at least two of the selection events. In certain classes, if there are not enough such competitors, we reserve the right to then select orienteers who have had good results over a longer period.  Performances by England team members at VHI 2012 will also be taken into consideration.

Orienteers who change age-class in 2013 may be chosen for their new age-class if the selectors are aware of the change, and if their results in their 2012 age-class are strong enough, unless they have informed the selectors that they only wish to be considered for their 2012 age class.

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 selection races, competitors are requested  to run the course recommended for their age-class. Vets who elect to run a longer course will have their results considered on a mins/k basis.
