WOC 2013 – the build up

The start of the 2013 World Orienteering Championships are only days away, with the team moving into their WOC accommodation today. The team will also be complete today when the last few members join those who have been on a pre-WOC training camp.

Those running the long distance ran the Long Model event this morning and the Sprint model is on tomorrow (Saturday).

The long qualification race is on Sunday with Neil Dobbs, Nicolas Simonin, Conor Short & Rosalind Hussey running. They can be followed online with details available on the WOC website, (there’s an english version of the site). There is GPS tracking for the men in this race, and for everyone in the other races. But I think this might be a paid service, which also includes tv pictures. More information on the website.
