'ave it!

Inspired by the nopesport Junior Run-in competition. At BOC, to add extra competition, nopesport will be sponsoring a M45+ and W45+ run-in competition. An overall fastest run in prize will be up for grabs for every mere human (non-elite) orienteer.

Grand prizes on offer to the winners......

How do you go about winning such great honours (apart from simply getting the fastest run in split), Rocky, one time O-ringen run-in winner spills the beans:

1. Check out the run-in in advance of competing. Is it flat smooth grass? Rutted cow paddock? this may influence your shoe selection.

2. On your course, practice your dibbing in and out technique to minimise time lost on missing the hole. Do you go for the grab the box technique or lunge with dibber out stretched?

3. If you are having a bad run, it may be worth while pre-running the run-in before going for the split.

4. Get a banner made for your supporters to hold and wave, to encourage you on the run-in.

5. Mentally pick off fellow competitors as you pass them on the run-in, giving you an added mental advantage.

6. 'AVE IT

Be a part of it and see you Saturday.
