Eligibility for the paralympic class in trail orienteering events

Posted on | January 24, 2011 | Category: News

The criteria for eligibility for the paralympic class in trail orienteering events has been updated. The amended Competition Rules for IOF Trail Orienteering Events will come into effect 1 February 2011.

The updated rule 5.2 says:

“Only competitors who have a permanent disability that significantly reduces their mobility are eligible to be entered for the paralympic class.

Competitors for the paralympic class shall submit to the IOF, at least eight weeks before the competition, an eligibility form (available at www.orienteering.org) completed by a doctor. When approved, a certificate authenticating their paralympic status will be issued. The eligibility certificate must be sent to the event organiser with the final entry form.”

The eligibility form can be downloaded here.
