This is the 15th year for this system. The rules for this year are the same as we used for the last seven years except that the meet director and coursesetter will be given as least the same number of points as the highest person that is on any of the courses and people who enter their route in RouteGadget within 7 days after the event will get 5 additional bonus points.

In the late 70's, the Quantico Orienteering Club had a point system and I was the point keeper. It was designed with known biasses. The male US Elite Champion then was not the top orienteer on the list. The top person was not even on the hardest course. The most yearly winners only run Green. This was because the points were accumulated over every event. With more events, the higher the point total. Also, the larger event, higher the points. Score events created the high number of points. The purpose of the system was three folds, for fun, getting you to come to more events and getting you to help at our events. The system also awarded people who do not finish.

The system is very simple. The last person of White is given 1 point, on Yellow 2 points, on Orange 3 points, Brown 4 points, Green 5 points, Red 6 points and Blue 7 points. Then the person that finish just above would get an additional point. This will continue up the list to the top person. Since all the points are total together from all the events from all courses, it will be unfair not to compare times between courses. When a runner on a harder or longer course has relative faster time than someone on an easier or shorter course, that former runner should get more points. Therefore in comparing times, 5 minutes will be added for each lower courses differ. This would increasing points for the higher courses when then had fewer runners.

For example, if a green runner received 15 points for a time of 60 minutes, then all persons on red with a faster time of 65 minutes and all persons on blue with a time less than 70 minutes will get as least 16 points.

People that are in groups do not earn points. Only people listed alone are tally. If a person run several courses at an event, the higher score is use only for that event.

Again this year there is an additional goal - getting more persons helping at our events. This year we had about 21 persons helping at each event, about 1 helper for every six starters. Therefore there are additional bonus points for helping. 50 points or the highest number of points gathered by any runner of the day for both the meet director and the course setter. 25 points for other helpers that did not run and 10 points for helpers who did run. Positions include registration, timing, teaching, hanging or remove controls, etc., etc., etc. (Persons who help and run will get as least 25 points for an event.) [Notes: Bonus points are added after they are listed on the web with the results of the event.]

I will like to add your gender/age category in the listing so you can compare your results with others in your category. To do so I am asking you to e-mail me the following information:

  • Name (the way you want it listed on this page)
  • Year of Birth
  • Gender
