Thanks for coming out and enjoying the sprint orienteering on a beautiful day in the Lincoln Park area.

The definition of sprint orienteering was probably pushed a bit with un-normally long courses. Still Jan-Erik Naess managed to run the 4.3km Sprint 1 course on an impressive time of 19.23 which equates to a bit over 4 minute / km!

The two courses had a mixture of pink flagging tape and regular e-punch controls – the strategy was to minimize the chance of having controls walking away as a few control features were in busy areas. The concept worked out great (no e-punch controls disappeared!) however, one control did turn into a challenge for a few runners. The control description was on the west side of a building and the “building” in this case was an electric box. To make it a bit confusing there was a real building on the edge of the control circle and someone had left a flagging tape there – so a few runners thought that the control actually was the wrong flagging tape instead of the e-punch. It was decided to include the runners without the e-punch properly checked for this control in the results.

Just for clarification – Jan-Erik did have the proper e-punch checked for this control…

We also want to extend our thanks to Tracy, Mike, Ian, Josh, and Orlin helping out during the event!
