Results for Dorothea Dix Sprint, May 9 2021

On May 9 on Mother’s Day we had our first open sprint for this year. The event didn’t start as well as I planned, because in the morning there was a 5k running race, and park was closed for cars and I could not start putting controls, that’s why the start was late and I […]

Cary (sub)urban Orienteering – October 5, 2019

Last minute updates: The weather is looking great, in fact, this might be the first really pleasant weekend of the fall! I couldn’t have planned it better.

Results Saturday – ARDF 2m (adult) and 80m (youth) championship

On Saturday we had two events: 80m for the youth and 2m for the adults. The adult 2m course turned out to be quite challenging, a lot of competitors came back with fewer controls than they had been assigned, a few even went overtime. The 80m course was easier. Results are below. Tonight we’ll have […]
