Restday 1st July

Filed under: Uncategorized — eli at 12:33 pm on Monday, July 1, 2013

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAHåvard Lucassen won the second day of Midnattsolgaloppen in category Men21-.
He told us that his race was nearly perfect, only some seconds lost. His tecnique; to look forward and run at a high speed is very convenient in this kind of terrain, and he would like to have possibilities to do that more often!

In womens  category, D21, Gøril Rønning Sund lost much time when she was missing one of the controls, but admitted that the winner,  Kaisa Pirkonen from Kuopion Suunnistajat, would have beaten her anyway. Gøril is better than her in the overall, but Emma Johansson is the best because she has two good races by now.

All the  4 races count in the overall result!

It is still possible to join the sailing-tour with “Anna Rogde” tonight. It starts from the harbour at the Clarion hotel/ the Culture house a 6 p.m.  It is a sailingtrip for 3 hours, and costs 200 kkr pr person. Be there at 17.30 if you haven’t bought tickets earlier.

Bamse m mglue534 participants in Midnattsolgaloppen 2013, and the sun is shining! And by now it is most participants in the first race.
Some news; Because of some bugs in the system it will only be start every second minute, but all the runners will be out by 8 p.m.

The MG-cap was originally worn by the overall organizer for MG. From the start in 1967 it was usually 4 clubs organizing one race each, with one leader in each club. But now the MG-cap is also given to good ambassadeurs for MG. Examples are Per Rekkedal – Bodø, Börje Vartiainen – Kalevan Rasti, Bengt Peterson – Varberg, Ellinor Nordmo – Mellembygd.
This year we give out4 MG-caps during the overall prizegiving ceremony the last day in Harstad.  The question is; Who will get the MG-cap this time?
