  • When making starting lists, the organiser will consider personal requests only in exceptional cases (air traffic-time, guiding children, working hours) when requested before Dec. 1st via hello@orienteering.vlaanderen
  • Youngsters of category -10 (both accompanied and non-accompanied) have a free starting time. Take care: compagnions must have run their race beforehand.
  • The chestnumber for members of OV- and FRSO-clubs will be handed over on their first day of participation.
  • The chestnumber of foreign participants are available at the secretariat after full payment on the first day of participation.
  • Participants with entries on the day itself will have free starting times and will have no chestnumbers.
  • Control descriptions for all courses will be available in the starting box (at -2 min.).
  • Each runner shall be present at the start at least 5 min. before their start time, with a clearly visible Sylvester5-2020 chest number and an SI-finger. Runners without these attributes are not allowed to start! The SI-finger must be initialised outside the starting box by using first the clear post (wait for audio signal which indicates that it is cleared) and then the check post (audio signal confirms that clearing was done properly). At -3 min. the runner enters the starting zone and has to place her/his SI-finger in the check post, while name, chestnumber and SI-number are checked; at -2 min. the runner takes the control description; at -1 min. the runner takes place beside her/his map box; on the signal of the startresponsible the runner takes his/her map and on the fifth (= longer) beep he/she starts.
  • Each runner is responsible for the initialisation of her/his SI-finger as well as taking the correct map.
  • No change of starting time will be accepted.
  • Late starters have to follow the instructions from the startteam/responsible.
  • The starting times are available on each event place, on the websites www.orienteering.vlaanderen/sylvester, www.helga-o.com and www.opunch.org
  • After having crossed the finish line, the race is finished and the participant is not allowed to re-enter the competition zone.
  • Each runner is reponsible for the stopping of his/her running time at the finish post as well as the reading-out of his/her SI-finger at the CC and this prior to the closing of the controls.
  • The results will be published in the CC.
  • The official results will be published on the websites www.orienteering.vlaanderen/sylvester, www.helga-o.com and www.opunch.org
  • For the courses SD, LD, SE and XS there will be only a day classification.
  • There will be no classification for the guided W-10B and M-10B (from one or more guided runs).
  • Each runner gets points every day he/she participated according to the Scottisch system (the time of the winner is divided by the running time and the quotient is multiplied by one thousand. Rounding happens upwards. The winner obtains so one thousand points).
  • The four best results (points) per participant are eligible for the final ranking.
  • Participants who take part less than four days, will also occur in the standings.
  • The proclamation of the overall results will take place on Dec. 30 at 2.00 p.m. in the CC of the last race. A prize will be given to the first three competitors of each categorie in the overall classification except for the categories M/WB and M/W-10B.
  • All M/W-10 and M/W-10B will receive a prize.
  • There is no prize giving for the courses SD, LD, SE, XS and children-O.
  • The names of the jury members (+ reserves) will be proclaimed at the CC each day.
  • The decisions of the judges are final.
  • Only written complaints can be handed in at the secretariat till 2 hours after the last start of the concerned race. For the event on day 5 it can only be done till 15 minutes after the final results are published.
  • The IOF-rules for international events will be applied.
  • The SI-system will be used. There is a possibility to rent an SI-finger at the secretariat (if booked in advance and with a caution of € 50).
  • Closing of the controls: 2 hours after the last start. It is necessary to read out the SI-finger within those 2 hours in order to be taken up into the results. Later is not possible! Those runners will be noted as “did not finish”.
  • We ask you to take care of the environment and to assist in keeping the finish area free of litter.
  • All competitors are responsible for their own insurance cover. OV- and FRSO-members can rely on the insurance of their club/federation.
  • The organiser accepts no responsibility nor third party liability. The same principle holds against the forestry authorities, the owners of the land and the municipal officials.

Good luck & have fun!
