48 SQKM OF DREAM TERRAIN

The map that will be used for 3 events in MG2011, was originally made for the Nordic Championship in 1984. The o-entusiast Arnulf Eide from Storsteinnes chose  the terrain. The map covers an area of 48 sqkm and consists of typical terrain for the northern part of Norway, mainly pure nature from the shore to the mountains.

The best orienteering-ambassador ever, Thierry Gueorgiou, has made himself an MG2011-“ambassador”.  In several interviews he has proclaimed the terrain and map in Malangen as one of his favourites, and the NOM-map is one of two he has chosen to put on his wall at home. Read more »

Old timers

News - by eli, 5 March 2011 1:31 PM

In 1984 the Nordic Championship (NOM) was organized in the same terrain as 3 of the races in MG2011. Norway won the overall, but all the competitors were very pleased with the o-tecnical challenges in the fast terrain. At that time the map was the biggest orienteeringmap in the world, nearly 50 scqkm.

Both juniors and seniors partcipated in the championship, with top orienteers as Tore Sagvolden, Annichen Kringstad, Anne Berit Eid, Jorunn Teigen and Morten Berglia amongst them.

Some of these top runners have already made their entry, for instance Heikki Peltola who then competed in M21 and Annaritta Kottonen in W21. Keijo Parkinen was in M 19-20 then, is it the same man who has made his entry in H21 this summer? Eli Charlotte Nordmo participated in W19-20, this summer she will represent Mellembygd o-lag. We have also heard that more of the runners from 1984 want to come to orienteer in this very nice terrain.
