I am starting to look to next year and the summer. It would be great to put together a highly competitive North american Venla and Jukola team. I also want to make this a tradition. If your interested in being part of this goal let me know on the this thread or email me. Thanks
I'm interested, but I'm also a little concerned about two months of travel from then until NAOC. But the desire is there.
Great news! I think all serious orienteers deserve to run near the lead group of Jukola and/or Tiomila at least once in their lifetime. ;-)
I know that I will always treasure the times we actually got prices (top 20/25) in those two relays, with a team of young kids who had grown up together in a small (25K) town in Telemark.
Good luck, if I make it to the relays I'll cheer for you!
I would also be interested.
I can't help with a "highly competitive" team but would love to be part of a second-string team. Jukola is on my bucket list!
Having participated in 2007, it's worthwhile for a bucket list.
Not sure how 'highly competitive' i might be now-a-days( if injury free)- however i would go for 'test run/race' eventually to see if 'fit' enough. Ran a first leg ( last century- lol)
