LuxOC Marks WOD in Style
Luxembourg Orienteering celebrated this year’s World Orienteering Day in style with a convivial urban event in Kirchberg that attracted 35 participants, one from as far afield as the French Atlantic city of Nantes. A strong LuxOC contingent competed with orienteers from neighbouring SudOLux and many unafilliated runners (hopefully soon-to-be LuxOC members!) on two courses set by David.
The unforgiving 5.3K Deer course took orienteers all the way down to Weimerskirch and back up the hill again, with the long climb taking anywhere between 11 and 25 minutes to complete, while the more lenient 3.5K Rabbit route didn’t venture much beyond the Kirchberg plateau. The lovely makeshift CC at Orsi’s porch, equipped with quality local and Czech lager, saw many a lively discussion on routechoices as well as debates about our next orienteering adventures. Jukola / Venla beckon on 18-19 June for both a male and a female LuxOC relay team, with another training in a parc or urban setting in Luxembourg to follow on 26 June (please check our Web site for details closer to the date).
