Rankings and Leagues
For those of a competitive nature, or those who simply want to track their progress, there are plenty of places to go to see various rankings and league results. This page aims to give an overview of the most popular. If you know of any we have missed, or have any missing links, please contact us and we will add them.
IOF / Worldwide Rankings
These rankings are for those who have reached the lofty heights of world-ranking competition. There's at least one current club member in there ...
British Orienteering Foundation (BOF) Rankings
BOF (British Orienteering Federation) provides a UK-wide ranking for all its members, based on your best 6 performances at regional and national events over the past 12 months.
If you log in to the site, you will see your current ranking under your name on the left-hand side, and clicking on it takes you to the 25-person section of the rankings that includes you.
- BOF Rankings can be filtered by age, club, gender etc. Club top-25 can be seen below. If you open multiple competitors on different tabs in your browser, then select 'show graph' on any one, you can compare rankings over the past year with those competitors. For full details on how the ranking system works, see Competition Rule S in the BOF Rules and Regulations document.
These leagues cover events across the whole of the UK, both forest and urban.
