Project WOC16

When I was 14 years old I got my first experience of running orienteering in Scandinavian terrain. It was with the Youth Regional Team of Zürich and my teammates created my nickname ”pudu” during this camp. We stayed for one week in Halden, Norway. The beauty of the terrain, the pure nature, the ability to run endless hours and find controls in the smallest depression in the forest fascinated me. I found my passion.

In 2016, 14 years later, the World Orienteering Championship (WOC) will take place in Strömstad, Sweden. Strömstad is located just 15k from Halden and the terrain is very similar to the one on the other side of the border.

    Believe in me

    It’s less than three months left until the World Champs in Strömstad. The last part of the project is the most important one and therefore I need your support to make it a success.
