ARDF USA Championship 2023 – Classic Day 2 Results

Filed under: Event Results,Latest News,Radio Orienteering by Imre Polik on April 24th, 2023

On the final day of the competition, we were greeted by below-seasonal temperatures (cold!) and rain. The roles were reversed from the day before: those who did 80m courses on Saturday did 2m on Sunday and vice versa. Many competitors were on a tight travel schedule, and the electrical storm delayed the course set-out schedule. The 80m courses from the previous day (shorter than the championship standard) were reused to avoid delaying those needing to catch early flights. The 2m transmitters were hastily relocated to make the shorter courses suitable for those in the short-course categories. None of the competitors complained about shortened courses after running in pretty miserable conditions.

Results are below.
