National Non-Elite Rankings for 2007

shanej2008 Archive

Ranking in non-Elite classes based on results in the Australian Easter 3-Days (E1, E2, E3), Australian and Oceania Sprint (AS, OS), Medium (AM, OM), Long (AL, OL) Distance Championships, the NSW and ACT Long Distance Championships (SA, SO).

Points are awarded for each event completed on the basis of 100 points for first place and lesser points for other competitors. An orienteer’s best 3 events count towards their ranking. The first 10 orienteers ranked in each class are published here. State Secretaries have lists of all orienteers ranked between 50 and 100 points inclusive. When more than 1 orienteer in a class has 100 points, the first ranked orienteer is determined by the average of their 3 best winning margins.
