Rankings for classes have been determined as in previous years based on results in the Australian Championships (A), the Australian Easter 3-Days (E), and all State Championships (by State initial letter, ACT = C, NT = O). Rankings for classes M/W 17–20, and 21 are calculated on a different basis and are separately published.
The first 10 place getters in each class are published here. State Secretaries have the full list of orienteers who scored less than 150.00 points.
