South of Scotland Orienteering League

Events in the SoSOL are designed for competitors of all ages and abilities and there will normally be eight courses: white, yellow, orange, light green, short green green, blue and brown, ranging from short and easy to fairly long and easy, from short and hard to long and hard. There may also be a long, easy course; contact the club for details

They are generally held on Sunday mornings with starts from 11:00 to 12:30 and there is generally no need to pre-enter  although, where offered, pre-entry can help both you and the club.

These events attract between 120-250 runners who can expect good quality terrain, friendly and efficient organisation, pre-marked maps and electronic punching.

League tables are drawn up for each course over the season with times converted to points and a runner's best (four-tbc) scores will count. Only runners who have scored in two or more events (in the same courses) will appear in these tables.

More details

Scores are based on the "Average" runner getting 100 points and other runners' times being scaled to points.
League positions will be determined by the total of the best scores. 
Each year the ESOA committee determine how many scores count. (4 from 7 in 2013-2014)

On the WHITE course all runners who complete their course get "***" instead of points and the tables do  not distinguish between juniors who did their course unaided, those who were shadowed and those who were accompanied.

8 colour coded courses are offered at each event and runners are free to choose whichever they wish.
There may be other courses, eg Long Orange, but these will not be included in the League tables.
