The British Orienteering National Badge Scheme awards Championship, Gold, Silver and Bronze Badges on the basis of performance over a series of events. Full details of the Scheme can be found at http://www.britishorienteering.org.uk/event/about.php#national_badge_scheme .
Championship Badges – are awarded each calendar year to Elite, Long or A course competitors who have achieved the qualifying time (at least one which must be recorded at the British Championships or the JK) at three of the following events –
·The British Orienteering Championships or British Elite Orienteering Championships (Long distance race only);
·The Jan Kjellstrom Individual Events
·The National Events for that year.
Gold, Silver and Bronze Badges –
are awarded on performances in Regional Events, National Events, the British Orienteering Championships, British Elite Orienteering Championships (Long distance race only) and the Jan Kjellström Individual Events over a two year period. Competitors must compete on their own and reach the required standard in three events in the same class within the two years. Qualifying times are calculated from the winning times for the course. Gold is 125%, Silver is 150% and Bronze is 200% of a base time which is the average of the top three places. If there are only 11 to 20 starters then the base time is the average of the first two places; if there are 10 or fewer starters then the base time is the winner’s time. Badge times for shorter courses are calculated by ratio of length from the longest course that day for that age class.
Junior (under-21) Ageless Gold, Silver and Bronze Badges –
are awarded on performances in Regional Events. The scheme is open to competitors who compete on their own and reach the required standard in three events in the same class within two years.
