Score-O 2017

Our traditional season finale was once again the Score-O on Mt Royal.  This year with 50 controls, a time  limit of 2.5 hours, and special Rambler controls. Despite the wet conditions we had a great turn out, including some runners as far as Ottawa.

The course had 5 “Rambler” controls, which were distributed in 5 different sections of Mt Royal. Orienteers who collected all 5 “Rambler” controls did the “full ramble” on the mountain and received extra points. Great that many participants went for the long run (9 of 46 women, 41 of 73 men, and 10 of 36 teams).

Thanks to course setter Sven von Fellenberg for making all this happen, the volunteers and all the participants for coming out, it was a blast. Until next time!

Eastern Canadian Orienteering Championships 2017

It was the biggest orienteering event in Montreal since decades. We had on both days over 200 participants, coming from all over Canada, the US, and even some from Europe. For the event, we inaugurated two brand new maps on Montreal’s  West Island, which provided challenges for all levels. A big thanks to meet director  Dmitri Golovanov who initiated the event, Bruce Glen for setting the courses on both days, and Orienteering Ottawa for the tremendous support. And all the many volunteers and runners who came out for this wonderful weekend!

Montreal Short Distance Championships 2017

The first edition of the Montreal Short Distance Championships took place in the lower part of Mount Royal, on the revised north section of the map, Mont-Royal Flanc Est. The participants were facing a challenging course, which required full concentration.  In the men’s category, we saw a head to head race with three runners finishing only 44 seconds apart. At control #11, Thomas Schuessler took the lead and stayed at the top until the very end. The women’s class saw an equal  tight race between Lea Fabre and Olga Rayda, with Fabre finishing 48 seconds ahead. Xavier Corbeil finished on top among the Juniors, follwed by Pavel Vlassov, and Vladimir Gavrilov was the fastest in the  Masters class.

Congrats to all the new champions, and thanks to everyone  for coming out and contributing to the great atmosphere. Until next time!
