LOG POINTS SYSTEMS EXPLAINED

There are two separate Performance Logs - for Urban and Bush Series events. Each is separated into a Women's and a Men's table. In the Urban Series, points are awarded on finishing POSITION (a fixed sliding scale of points for each finisher ). While in the Bush Series, points are calculated by TIME (your time against the winner's time multiplied by the maximum score for that course). Each Bush course has a different maximum points allocation : Brown = 1000, Blue = 800, Green = 600, Light Green =450, Orange = 350 and Yellow = 250. The scoring for Championship events are different, with each age category having a maximum score of 1000 points. Only 5 out of 9 Urban events count towards your final score. The Bush Log will take your best 5 out of 13 (including only 2 championships) events towards your final score. Both Logs are further divided into age categories. So, there you have it now !

WHAT IS ORIENTEERING ?

Orienteering is an outdoor adventure activity, which involves finding your way around a course in the terrain using a detailed map and some common sense.

Participants leave the starting point at regular intervals and must find their way to several checkpoints, set-out at various features in the area and return to the finish, after visiting each checkpoint. Much like a treasure hunt. The competitor with the shortest elapsed time on each course, is declared the winner.

The activity can be enjoyed by adults and children - old and young - fit or unfit. As you set your own pace walking or running - it is ideal recreation for individuals or groups. Families are welcome to try Orienteering, going round the course together.

The length of an Orienteering course varies from 1 km with six to ten controls for beginners, up to about 10 km for the more adventurous. The challenge is yours !.
