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

SOC: 1st Nov: November Classic

DVO: 15th Nov: Eyam

WCH: 13th Dec: Cannock Chase

plus  BOC2009 and JK2009

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 BOC2009 and JK2009 as well as their autumn results.

Orienteers who change age-class in 2010 may be chosen for their new age-class if the selectors are aware of the change, and if their results in their 2009 age-class are strong enough.

When events use Colour-coded courses, competitors are requested  to run as follows:

Brown: M40

Short Brown: M45, M50

Blue Men: M55, M60

Blue Women: W40

(All three classes run Blue, if the course is not split)

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).
