There’s always a first time
In nearly 30 years of orienteering I’ve never, ever, skipped a control by mistake and punched the next one, then had to return. Until today. Our official orienteering season kicked off with a league sprint race at Sarid, about 10 minutes from home. This year the league includes 12 races, 4 of them sprints, with […]

Watch this
If you’ve never watched an orienteering headcam video from start to finish before, now is the time to start. This is probably the best sprint orienteering terrain I’ve ever seen, captured by Daniel Griff: The route is in part of the Old City of Jerusalem – the Jewish Quarter. Unfortunately I couldn’t participate, but hopefully I’ll […]

Israel is a small country, and sometimes we feel that we’ve already discovered all the great orienteering terrain, and there’s nothing new left to explore. But last summer I discovered a gem while running the Gilbo’a single-track. A couple of weeks later I had a Lidar base map, and on Friday we held a low-key […]
