First, make sure that you are using the standard age categories and have read the instructions about uploading results.
For the UK Urban League, , selects the races, usually in October, with help from the secretaries of the regional leagues. We are looking for something that makes your event attractive so that it stands out from the crowd. For example, is it a new area? Does it offer access to areas that are normally closed to the public? Can it be combined with some nearby forest or urban orienteering on an adjacent day? Do you have a magnificent assembly, maybe with showers and changing? Is yours the only event in a wide swathe of the country? Does it coincide with a local carnival or with a major sporting event coming to town? Is there a special deal on accommodation? The more attractive features that are offered, the more chance that it will be included in the League. Make sure we know about them.
As long as it can legitimately be regarded as urban, and can produce results in the specified categories, the precise format of the event doesn't matter. On behalf of the competitors, we want the event to be as good as possible. It's up to you to decide what works best at your venue; we won't compromise that from afar by imposing constraints on course length, category combinations, numbers of races, etc. If you think that a double sprint is best, do it!
When your fixture secretary registers the event with BOF, ensure that it's flagged as 'urban'. Also, around the turn of the year when calendars are being prepared there's often a Nopesport thread that lists forthcoming urban races. Posting an item on this thread will help the race get noticed, particularly if it is not yet on the BOF fixture list.
