Policy for Entry Fee Subsidy

Last edited: Tue 6 Jul 2021

The Club may encourage participation in official SN teams by offering an entry fee subsidy.

The level of subsidy is kept under constant review and is confirmed on an event-by-event basis as notified by the Team Captain. The current policy (updated with effect from 2019) is that Seniors (M/W 21+) are charged a maximum of 50% of the advertised fee or £5 per event, whichever is lower (i.e. if advertised entry fee is less than £10 per runner you pay up to 50%, otherwise pay £5). Juniors (M/W 20-) are fully subsidised, including where they 'run up' in a senior class. Any eligible member of an officially entered SN team will qualify for the appropriate subsidy.

Members of other “closed” clubs may choose to run competitively for SN as their nominated
“open” club in any given year, in accordance with British Orienteering Rules Section 8, Eligibility
(specifically Rule 8.1). Such members will also qualify for entry fee subsidy where appropriate.

SN members may choose to enter other team-based competitions, but generally these will not be
as official SN club teams (e.g. White Rose Relays, Army Harris Relays) and will not qualify for
subsidised entry fees.
