Welcome

Junior Orienteer

Mountain Goat Course Map

Cory Smith prevailed against wind, rain, and a strong field of runners to win the Mountain Goat Race. The race challenged runners to navigate through a 20+ km loop through the Chugach Mountains above Anchorage. Each segment of the race offered choices of routes so the competitors sometimes didn’t see other runners until they showed up at a subsequent checkpoint.

Results

1) Cory Smith, 3:50:37; 2) Patrick Stinson, 4:15:38; 3) Brent Knight and Harlow Robinson, 4:31:38; 4) David Apperson, 5:21:37; 5(tie) Christie Haupert, Robin Beebee, Nathaniel Knapp, 5:54:08; 6) Mike Robinson, 5:57:48; 7) Nathan Child, 7:38:38; 8) Tamra Kornfield, 7:51:08

Art’s Excellent-O

Wednesday, June 4, 2014
Far North Bicentennial Park

Over 80 participants braved the think clouds of mosquitoes and challenging terrain to orienteer on a beautiful sunny day in Bicentennial Park. Volunteers found a dead moose calf on Tuesday near one of the control locations on the Red course. This caused the Meet Director to shorten that course by over a kilometer in order to avoid the area. Ian Moore had the fastest time on the men’s red course, with Anne Billman winning the women’s red.

The meet was put on by Art Harmon, with help from Jennifer, Harlen and Cecilia Harmon. Thanks to Jeremy Crawford, Dan Ellsworth, Steve Gruhn, Kathy Farynairnz, Dwight Iverson, Lia and Trudy Keller and Chris Tomsen and Eric McCabe for help with the courses.

Spurkland, Jolliff Win Earthquake Park Map Debut

Wednesday, May 28, 2014
Earthquake Park

Over 100 people came out to Earthquake Park to experience the Arctic Orienteering Club’s first traditional meet on our new Earthquake Park map. Competitors braved a few raindrops, a few moose, and more than a few mosquitos while learning the nuances of this amazing new orienteering area. Praise was universal for the intricate terrain, interesting features, mild vegetation and the finely-detailed, accurate map. The number of mosquitos was also very impressive.

Lars Spurkland was the fastest competitor on any course, with a time of 39:58 on the most challenging 3.4 kilometer Red course. Jen Jolliff was the fastest woman on the Red course, finishing in 49:26. Also of note, the Red course had 24 starts, twice as many as any other course.

This meet was put on by Cory Smith, with help from Linda Smith. Thanks to Regan Sarwas for rescuing an injured competitor. Thanks to Resource Data, Inc for printing the maps.

If anyone is interested in getting a little more experience with this map, there are still some controls that need to be picked up. Contact Cory Smith if interested.
