I have a question about the performance benchmarks for the development team. The only times given are for Orange level performance. What about juniors who are running on advanced courses. How do they determine if they qualify? Do they have to go out and run an Orange course? And what if the terrain is slow (excessive climb or slow vegetation)?

These are rough guidelines, times given are for Orange, and can be calculated from their results in a race. They can go back to an old race on Orange and figure out their speed they had at that time, before moving up to an advanced level, and then also include the speed for some of the advance courses they ran recently. It is just so as to be able to quantify "orienteered confidently".
