UK Elite O League

The UK Elite Orienteering League defines the must-do races for elites and aspiring elites.

The League aims to inspire young orienteers to compete at the highest level and we have categories for MW18, 20, U23 and Senior to provide a pathway for success. We reward success with prize money and prizes from our sponsors NVii Str8 UK, Formline and Podium Catering.

Scoring: Looking at this years races, clashes with international events and the reactive nature of race selection we have decided that 5 races are required for Seniors and 4 for Juniors, with no requirements for certain disciplines. See scoring for full details.
