Devon Moorland League

It was a real blast of winter at Haytor on 12th November at Haytor but the first event of the Devon Moorland league table got off to a great start, especially for the juniors.

Brown saw Ben Chesters, M35,  in1st place but not far behind in 3rd place is Flurry Grierson, M16. Blue is being led by Jack Forrest M16, whilst Green has Jackie Hallett of BOK W60 in 1st  position, followed by Finn Robinson M14. Rebecca Medlock, W40 is leading Short Green with Jill Green W70 in second place. Light Green has Elizabeth Horsler W14 of WIM in 1st place. First on Orange is Frankie Perren Smart W18, and Oliver Hayter, M10, is leading on the Yellow  course.

It was a great day out and thanks go to the planner Damian Wilson. The next league event is at Holne Moor on the 10th December. Tim Gent


The Devon Moorland Orienteering League aims to present regular and reasonably competitive orienteering to club members (Devon and non-Devon) and newcomers. 

All competitors are automatically registered at the time of their first run during the season. In 2017-18 (from November 2017 –March 2018) it is intended that the league comprises five events over varied terrain, including Devon’s Galoppen (South West league) event in November.

Please see the latest fixture details for dates of league events.

There are a range of courses available to suit both novice and experienced orienteers, linked to the British Orienteering colour coded guidelines. The courses used for the 2017-18 league are: Brown, Blue, Green, Short Green, Light Green, Orange and Yellow.

Competitors scores are calculated as follows:
Score = (fastest registered competitors time/your time) X 1000

On all courses, the competitor’s best four out of five results will count.

Certificates will be awarded at the end of the season for the first male and first female competitor on each course. On the Yellow and Orange courses, only junior competitor scores qualify.

Whilst shadowing of juniors is allowed we ask that this should be non-active unless the run is subsequently declared non-competitive. The adult shadowing the junior should also have already completed their run. Non-competitive results are not included in the league. Second runs at the same event should also be declared non-competitive.

For the purposes of the league, pairs are allowed to run on Yellow and Orange courses and shall be awarded the total number of points as if they were individuals. Competitors on Yellow or Orange courses may change to running individually or with a different partner at any event during the season.

Organisers, Planners and Controllers of league events receive a score equivalent to the average of the score they achieve at other events. Their scores are highlighted in red on the table of results.

Tim Gent compiles the league scores –to whom any comments or questions should be addressed.
