Sprint Training Tour - Wellington 1st August
Posted: 23 June 2009, 3:12 PM
Hey people, anyone after an orienteering fix and tempted by the Winter Classic, well make a weekend of it, come along to the Sprint Training Tour, which a few of us are putting on the day before...
"Sprint Training Tour....1st August 2009
All keen orienteers, or other navigators are invited to participate in the "Sprint Training Tour" to be held in Greater Wellington on the 1st of August. When combined with the prestigous Winter Classic event, this year being held in the suburban bush close to downtown Wellington, it should make for a great weekend of orienteering.
The tour will start with two maps in the Hutt Valley, under the guidance of coaching guru Michael Wood, and move into the city where urban dwellers Magnus Bengtson and Jamie Stewart will rustle up a couple more challenges to "learn you'. Although perhaps not as much as you will be "learned" by the Winter Classic the next day!
The courses on each map will be short and focus will be given to specific aspects of sprint training. As the event is a designated training event, the only charge will be a small fee for map printing. Times may be kept, but people will be encouraged to use these runs as learning opportunities.
The Tour will finish at a cafe where there will be an opportunity to discuss the techniques used during the day, socialise and hear about a new initiative in Wellington region orienteering...'The Red Perils'. Want to know more, well come along! Pre-registrations are necessary to allow map printing, email your registrations to firstname.lastname@example.org". Further details will be sent to participants...
.....and remember to enter the Winter Classic, this year with an additional 3 hour rogaine style challenge if thats what you are into."
