The ON classification is an organisation of UBA.
It is a regularity-criterion of ARDF and fox-O-ring contests organised by UBA chapters. These contests are announced in the ARDF calendar on the UBA website. All contests are arranged in accordance with the ARDF Rules (IARU Region 1 Rules). The organiser has the right to deviate from the official rules provided they are clearly communicated to all participants.
For each contest, participants will be awarded points depending on the place achieved:
1 = 30 points
2 = 25 points
3 = 22 points
4 = 20 points
5 = 18 points
6 = 16 points
7 = 14 points
8 = 12 points
9 = 10 points
from 10th place = 9 points
except for time overrun = 5 points
amateurs = 9 points
organisers (maximum 2) = 20 points
helpers (maximum 5) = 9 points
The final result for each competitor is the sum of all points obtained, regardless of the number of participations. In case of an equal number of points, the number of first places, if necessary the number of second places, etc., will be taken into account.
To be included in the final result, it is sufficient to participate in 3 races. If timekeeping is done with the EMIT system, only participants with EMIT badges will participate in the ranking. All others will receive 9 points by default.
Separate rankings will be made for the age classes as provided in the international ARDF rules (IARU Region 1 ARDF-rules). The organiser is free to deviate from the separate age classes and rank all participants in one list. If a separate ranking is made it will be according to the table below:
W19: ladies (< 19 years of age)
W21: ladies (regardless of age)
W35: ladies (> 35 years)
W50: ladies (> 50 years)
W60: ladies (> 60 years)
M19: men (< 19 years of age)
M21: men (of any age)
M40: men (> 40 years)
M50: men (> 50 years)
M60: gents (> 60 years)
M70: gents (> 70 years)
(Table comforming to IARU Region 1 ARDF rules).
