Course levels

  • A-level: A-courses are the most demanding and all techniques of orienteering must be mastered.
  • B-level: B-courses demand short detailed orienteering close to the control points and a good knowledge of contour lines.
  • C-level: C-courses mainly follow guide lines, but occasionally athletes are expected to leave these lines. There are crossroads opportunities.
  • N-level: N-courses have one obvious crossroad along continous guide lines (roads, paths, streams and fences). All controls are visable from the guide lines.

The development classes Utvikling B, C and N are offered for children and youth at these levels. The development classes are open for participants aged up to 20 years. The class N-Åpen meant for absolute beginners and mainly at young age.

Athletes 12 years and younger, and athletes in N-classes and Utvikling classes will receive their map and course at the arena all days.
