How the NOL/NSL leaderboard is calculated:

The New Zealand National Orienteering League (NOL) and National Sprint League (NSL) leaderboards combines and analyses NZ orienteering athlete performances each season. The NOL leaderboard is calculated from recognised forest events and NSL points are gained from national sprint competitions. Selected events over the season are combined to determine New Zealand’s fastest navigators in a range of terrain around the country.

NOL / NSL points are contested in M/W21E and in M/W20E classes at nominated events with points awarded based on time behind the winner in each event. The 21E class the winner receives 100 points and athletes that follow in position are scaled behind, in the 20E class the winner receives 80 points before the following athlete points are calculated. The athlete with the most points at the end of the season will be crowned champion!
