Awards

Last Updated: Tue 13 Nov 2018

Badges, certificates, medals and trophies are awarded throughout the year for club and regional competitions and major events like the British Championships.

Colour Coded Badges

This is a great way to keep track of how you're progressing as an orienteer, all the way from white standard to the rarely seen black. Badges are awarded by the South East Orienteering Association (SEOA). To qualify for a colour coded badge you need to successfully complete a course three times on your own (or once on a White course). Pairs can also qualify for badges on the White, Yellow and Orange courses. Will Heap keeps track of our junior achievements at local events. If you travel further afield let him know so he can keep the records up to date and make sure you get the badges you deserve.

SO League Certificates & Medals

There are 3 annual SO leagues where certificates or medals are awarded - an autumn SOG, spring SOG and a summer Sprint series. SOG certificates are awarded to the first 3 competitors on the Yellow and Orange courses and the first placed junior male and junior female on the Green and Blue courses. Medals are awarded for the summer Sprint series to the first 3 competitors in each age category. More info and current league tables are here.
