A hot weekend for the first round of the NOL (SuperSeries). No surprises in M21E and W21E where Gene Beveridge and Nick Hann fought it out for the men, and Lizzie Ingham was a clear winner on all 3 days for the women. Very interesting in the 20’s though with Ronan Lee taking the sprint […]

Although orienteering activity has been somewhat scarce during November there has been a lot going on behind the scenes. This includes putting together as far as possible details of training camps in the first half of the year, organizing dates for trials for various teams, and an entertaining weekend of having various members of the HP Squads test running courses for WMOC2017 in Woodhill Forest.
The highlight of October without a doubt has been Tim Robertson’s performance in coming 4th in the final race of the 2016 IOF World Cup, leaving him in 16th place overall in the series. However, October has also seen a highly successful Alpine O Weekend in the high country of Craigieburn, and considerable progress in planning for 2017. The later includes finalising the 2017 High Performance Squads, venues for various trials, and proposals for a HP camp.

Short reports on all of these are included below. The first and last have also […]

Gene Beveridge (NZL) posted about orienteering on his personal blog: Tour De Peninsula marks the build up to the 2015 orienteering season in NZ with its series of 8 races over 3 days with the cycle tour inspired concepts used by Sprint the Bay in previous years. This year I was open to compete for as many of the leaders’ singlets as I could.
Following the first round of the 2015 SuperSeries run as part of the Tour de Peninsula over Waitangi weekend, Matt Ogden and Laura Robertson lead the M21E and W21E fields respectively. The two Superseries races at Ferrymead and Lincoln University were both flat and fast, but run in vastly different conditions – the cold and […]
As noted by Simon , I have recently been appointed as High Performance Leader. One of the first tasks that I need to undertake will be the development of a plan that, over the next 2 years, will help to take our leading athletes to the next level internationally, as well as ensure that the […]
