Would you like a GPS (MapRun) orienteering league? In response to an idea raised, we are considering introducing SEGOL (Southern England GPS Orienteering League) to run in the remainder of 2020 and alongside SEOUL in 2021, and we want to know whether this is a good idea. Whether you like it or loathe it, please fill in at least pages 1 and 2 of our little consultation and get everyone else to do so too. Thanks in advance for your feedback!

We aim to make a decision on SEGOL 2020 around 27th September.

SEOUL will be back for 2021! Sandra Mather and I, Tom Dobra, have taken over coordinating the league. However, an orienteering league isn’t one without any races. If your club has anything in the pipeline for 2021, please get in touch with us at to be included in next year’s list.

We all owe a huge thank you to Chris and Simon Branford for their sterling work over the many years. You’ve given us a tough act to follow.

We have decided to cancel the Southern England Orienteering Urban League (SEOUL) for 2020 as there is insufficient races to have a meaningful league.

As we announced earlier this year, 2020 is the last SEOUL that we are organising. We have had no offers from anyone to take over there will be no League in 2021. If anyone is willing to take over please do contact us (

We thank all the clubs and individuals involved for their support over the years in organising races for SEOUL.
