Competition

O-Ringen Värmland 2017 offers challenges for each and every competitor, ranging from elite runners fighting for the final victory after five days, to those who want to challenge themselves from day to day, and to the youngest kids having fun on the string course.

Målgång OL O-Ringen

O-Ringen Värmland 2017, in the wild and wonderful forests of this untouched Scandinavian region, will present minor changes from past years in terms of races and classes available during the week.

  • An Elite Tour has been created for all elite classes, ranging from Women/Men 18 Elite to Women/Men 21 Elite.
  • The classic 5-Day event is open to all three disciplines: Foot O, Mtb O and Trail O
  • If you have previously run an M class (Motion/Recreational) or Challenge, you will now select your preferences within your Personal Program. In your Personal Program you pick your combination of courses and who you compete with, regardless of gender and age. If you want to compete with participants with the same gender and age group you will find ready-made packages corresponding to Motion/Recreationa and Challenge classes.
  • Open courses have changed and can be found under the name Stage Starts.
  • Learn and Try includes beginners, U class (youth/development class), Miniknat (string course for the youngest kids), i.e. everything suited to those who want to learn more and try out O-Ringen and orienteering as a sport for the first time.
