The NWOA are re-launching their Colour Badge Scheme, which recognises the progression of orienteers through colour coded events from WHITE to LIGHT GREEN. This is a scheme of awarding Colour Badges at Orienteering Events for newcomers of all ages. To qualify for your Colour Badge you must achieve colour standard in the same colour course at three different events. This qualifying standard does not apply to those Juniors entering the WHITE course, the only requirement for this course is that they enter three different events on this course to receive their Badge. Your finishing time must be either the winner's time + 50 % or top half of the course, where your time is within the colour standard for that course. The Colour Standards for the event will be published with the results. Click here for more details.
