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

Scottish 6-days Day 1, 31st July, Dundie and Ganavan
Scottish 6-Days Day 5, 5th August, Lochnell and Shenavallie
SOC November 6th, New Forest
SYO November 27th, Burbage
SYO February 5th 2012, Big Moor
plus  BOC2011 and JK2011

Those wishing to be considered should compete in at least two of the summer/autumn/winter selection events, including at least one of the events in England. Very good results in three or more of these events will lead to selection; competitors who do not have such results may have the results of BOC2011 and JK2011 taken into consideration as well.

Performances by England team members at VHI 2011 will also be taken into consideration.

Orienteers who change age-class in 2012 may be chosen for their new age-class if the selectors are aware of the change, and if their results in their 2011 age-class are strong enough, unless they have informed the selectors that they only wish to be considered for their 2011 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/winter selection races, competitors are requested  to run as follows:

Course Men’s Class(es) Women’s Class(es)
Brown: M40
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).
