A Bad Day at the Races
This weekend was the Winter Cup, and for a change it was actually in winter – unbelievably, it even rained on both days. That’s not an excuse for my orienteering, just a fact of life. Day 1, Menahamiya – totally new terrain, very steep and muddy. Roni’s VJ Falcon fell apart and she quit, barefoot, […]

Preparing a Rogaine
A couple of weeks ago I organised a rogaine in Beit Keshet forest, not far from home. Israel is a small country, so we don’t have many areas suitable for our full length (8 hour) rogaines, but there are some smaller ones that can be used for mini-rogaines, and this was the first time in this […]

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 […]

Rogaine 2018
This year’s Rogaine was in the Jerusalem hills, not far west of Jerusalem. All credit to Noam Ravid for mapping and planning the event, on a very large and tough area. I know how much effort is involved and this was the most challenging we have had. The terrain is hilly, mostly very steep, and […]
