Level A B & C events in Scotland

An explanation of how events are graded:

  • Level A - Major national championships eg Scottish Champs, British Champs etc. (attendances often 1,000+)
  • Level B - Major regional events such as Scottish O League Events (attendances often 300/400+)
  • Level C - Medium sized events with a wide selection of courses - tend to attract reasonable numbers of people from other clubs (attendances 100-250)
  • Level D - Local events with fewer courses and more informal organisation. Usually aimed at members of the host club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs.

BTO Urban League guidelines

Scottish Orienteering Urban League Logo

Updated for 2017

SOUL events should follow as closely as possible the comprehensive BOF Urban events guideline (Rules of Orienteering Appendix B, section11), the May 2016 version of which can be found here.

This provides guidance on course lengths, combinations and specific advice regarding safety for juniors.

The main change is the introduction of new Hypervet classes (75+).
