0️⃣ days to go. The UK Elite Orienteering League Final is here.

Competitors have battled for points over 11 rounds across the country. Today's British Orienteering Championships 2019 are athletes last chance to improve their positions or defend what they’ve got. Lots is at stake on the moors of Kilnsey & Arncliffe.

The weather will be fairer than last time but the terrain more technical. Historic leadworkings enhance masses of fine contour detail on steep slopes - challenging navigation at speed. Speed itself will be challenged by limestone pavement underfoot.

This all lends itself to exciting racing with a few big name seniors on the startlist we haven’t seen much of this season: Scott Fraser, Alexander Chepelin, Hollie Orr could cause some upset.

⚠️ We’ve updated the scoring at ukeliteoleague.org.uk so people’s current scores are locked in and points scored tomorrow are added on top. This means you know exactly what you need to do for the result you want. It also means some previously excluded long results are now counting and a slight shuffling of positions, apologies for the changes.

Fans can find seeded startlist here ➡️ drive.google.com/file/d/1TguhHP5R6nk4XxJuVdVHRvWFZAnJYftF/view

We’ve gone for a Favorite / Decent Bet / Long Shot approach on the predictions this time to spice things up:

W21 Megan Carter-Davies / Cecilie Andersen / Grace Molloy
M21 Scott Fraser / Will Gardner / Duncan Coombs
W20 Fiona Bunn / Laura King / Niamh Hunter
M20 Alastair Thomas / Finlay Todd / Freddie Carcas
W18 Eilidh Campbell / Evie Conway / Alice Wilson
M18 Matthew Gooch / Peter Molloy / David Bunn

Smash it everyone!
