**Please note that this event may have a maximum entry; early entry is recommended.

Those wishing to be considered should compete in at least two of the above six selection 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, and particularly in JK2017 and BOC2017.

Performances for England at VHI 2017 on 23rd/24th September will also be taken into account, whether good or bad.

Orienteers who change age-class in 2018 may be chosen for their new age-class if the selectors are aware of the change, and if their results in their 2017 age-class are strong enough, unless they have informed the selectors that they only wish to be considered for their 2017 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 selection races, competitors are requested to run the course recommended for their age-class. Vets who elect to run a longer course may, at the selectors’ discretion, have their results considered on a mins/k basis.

England Vets Selectors: Jackie Hallett (BOK), Tim Tett (SYO), Andy Hemsted (HOC, Chair).
