The Calculation link takes you to the spreadsheet used to calculate the scores, so you can check that I've got them right.

the list of events can be made shorter or longer. If you think I've missed a good one or that some are inappropriate, let me know on this general purpose Feedback Form.


Points will be allocated to all Stragglers running unaccompanied on technically hard courses at Stragglers' and nearby events. Your 6 best scores in the last year will determine your position in the table.

For cross-country events, points will be calculated as follows - for all TD4 (Light Green, J/W4) and above courses, calculate every Straggler's corrected time per km as follows - divide the time from the results by the corrected course length (= length + (10*climb)) then multiply by an age class speed factor. the fastest corrected time per km is awarded 100 points, everyone else scores points in proportion.

At relay events, the calculation is as above, with the total time taken by the team being multiplied by the sum of the age class speed factors.

For score events, points will be calculated as follows - for the premier score course, calculate every Straggler's corrected points as follows - score from results (before any handicap adjustment) multiplied by an age class speed factor. the highest points score is awarded 100 points, everyone else scores points in proportion.


Which events will be included?

these are selected by the co-ordinator with advice from the Club Committees and members. Any reasonably local event attracting with a fair sprinkling of Stragglers will qualify. Some smaller events will be included to encourage participation, as will the CompassSport Trophy Final. The JK, British Champs and Scottish/Welsh/Lakes/White Rose multi-day day events won't normally be included, despite their popularity with Stragglers. This is a local league for local people!

Isn't the points calculation complicated?

No. Its just based on your running speed with a handicap for your age and sex. Have a look at the spreadsheets used to calculate the results. Let me know if I've made any mistakes!

Where do the age/sex class speed ratios come from?

They are based on the running speeds used for calculating course length ratios in the 2011 British Orienteering Rules and Guidelines.

The factors are -

2008, 2009, and 2010 events used these factors, derived from winning times in World Masters events -

2007 events used these ratios -

Why aren't the Junior courses included?

It is difficult to fairly handicap across different technical difficulties. Juniors already have their own league.

Don't those running the easier/shorter courses have an advantage?

Almost all events included are on areas where Light Green should be as technically hard as Brown. Shorter courses tend to have more controls per km, which would have an opposite effect to being able to run faster for a shorter distance.
