Urban League 2014
Sponsored by bto
The 2014 bto SOUL prizegiving was held at a lively SEDS ceilidh following SOUL 8 at Kingussie on 27 Sept. A full report on the 2014 season will appear in the next edition of SCORE. The updated SOUL roll of honour is below, and some news about the 2015 series is now available.
The 2014 series
The full SOUL schedule for 2014 had 8 great races, including 2 sprint distance races and with the exciting prospect of a first Urban Score race for the SOUL series! The best 4 races from 8 will counted this year, and with 3 of the races "up North" hopefully this gave most Scottish Orienteers the chance to have a competitive season in the SOUL series. We were able to provide some nice prizes courtesty of our sponsors bto solicitors. In the event of any ties, the next best non-counting score was used to determine the overall winner, and so on.
