Unofficial European Cup in Trail Orienteering continued in Lithuania

Posted on | June 16, 2015 | Category: News

The second round of this year’s Unofficial European Cup in Trail Orienteering (ECTO), was organised last weekend in Kaunas Lithuania.

The first competition took place on an island in the River Nemunas close to the City Centre. It was a typical park TrailO with not too much map reading of contour lines but more to find lines in between different features. Obviously, this was not too easy because the three best competitors had three mistakes at 24 controls. Winner was Anna Jacobson OK 77, FIN with Martin Fredholm OK Linné, SWE on the second place and Anatoly Blyakhman OSK Don, RUS on the third place.

The second day of ECTO was organised in a pine forest about five kilometres west of the city. In this competition there was much more map reading of the contour lines but  the tasks wete obviously also more difficult as the two best hade five mistakes on 28 controls. Winner was Sergii Stoyan UKR with Jānis Rukšāns OK Kāpa, LAT on the second place.

The day before the ECTO days there was also a TempO arranged where Martin Fredholm OK Linné, SWE was the winner and a relay which was won by UKR 1.

Lithuania will organise World Trail Orienteering Championships 2017, and it is expected that the same team lead by Andrius Jovaisa will be in charge of the arrangements then.
