Yukon Orienteering Championships (YOC) - Long distance event.
Wednesday June 15, 2016
Yukon orienteers participated in the long distance championships on the Long Lake Southeast map behind Whitehorse Hospital Wednesday evening. This was the final event of this years YOC.
A long distance event emphasizes route choice. A dense (and confusing) trail network provided the necessary route choices for all four courses.
67 orienteers participated on four courses between 1.5 and 5.4 km in length. There was close competition on the Intermediate course while regulars shone on the other courses.
Orienteers were subjected to frequent shower bursts mixed with hot sunny breaks.
