Last weekend a Sprint race in the Norwegian Cup and the Norwegian Champs in Ultralong was arranged in Steinkjer.
The Sprint was held in the city center, and I had a good run. My result was a 2nd place, 17 seconds behind Olav Lundanes. The race was also the final in the new Norwegian Cup in sprint orienteering, where I also finished 2nd, behind Olav. Results and GPS tracking
The Ultralong was held in a very nice terrain, with open and quite dry marches. The first 50 min of the race was the toughest, with a lot of climbing until we reached the highest peak on the map on the 7th control. I did mainly a good race, without any control mistakes. I lost some time on a few legs (most to the 17th control), when I was not running the optimal route, but was able to keep a stable speed the whole course, and was satisfied when I finished the 24 km long course after 2h 42 min. Olav won again with solid margin, and I finished in 5th position. Results and GPS tracking
