The adventure continues. Today, the elite and MTBO gottheir activity day, while the runners takes hold of the third stage.
Today will be hot, really hot! In combination with a more than 100 meters climb up the mountain to start, you need take plenty of time to get to the start, use sun screen, drink lots of water and cover your head. On the Arena, there is not much shade so you need to be careful.
All the orienteering runners go to Yxbacken by bus or you take the bike. There is no car parking at the arena. The buses depart from O-Ringentorget or from the Satellite parking at Bråvalla.
During the third stage, we can enjoy an area that offers several small beautiful forest lakes and closer to the goal it is steep. It is mainly forests, but some paths crosses old cultural land. Bitwise, the structure, which is similar across large areas, can make it easy to make parallel errors. It is important to adjust the speed so that you do not miss to secure your position continuously.
- If it goes too fast here, you may run the risk of failing, says one of the string setters, Bo Jernberg. The longer courses will enter an area of completely different character - detailed and hilly - in the form of the so-called Kvillinge ravine, which is an almost magical nature reserve area where in some places you can feel that you are in a maze built by nature. It is almost walking speed that is recommended for certain distances, ”adds Jernberg, who along with Mikael Håkansson strings the paths for the orientation runners on the third stage.
