For Interland 2024, we will be selecting for the age-classes M/W40 to M/W65. As there are no major events in the autumn, we will also consider performances in events which have already taken place.

Selection Races:

  • BOC2023
  • JK2023, Days 2 and 3

Summer and Autumn:

  • Scottish Six-Days, Darnaway 31st July
  • Scottish Six-Days, Culbin (Long), 3rd August
  • WCOC Whinlatter, Sunday 3rd September
  • Caddihoe Chase Day 1, Mallards Pike, NGOC, Saturday 30th September
  • November Classic, New Forest, SOC, Sunday 5th November

Those wishing to be considered should have competed in at least two of the above selection events, with at least one event in the Summer/Autumn.

Performances for England at VHI 2023 will be taken into consideration, whether good or not-so-good.

Orienteers who change age-class in 2024 may be chosen for their new age-class if the selectors are aware of the change, and if their results in their 2023 age-class are strong enough, unless they have informed the selectors that they only wish to be considered for their 2023 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 event that a race, or races, are cancelled, or a course being voided, the selectors will still consider competitors without the requisite number of results provided that they had entered the cancelled race(s) and that the total of achieved results plus entries for cancelled races meets or exceeds the required number of races.

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).
