When was your first participation at NV-galoppen?

I can’t even remenber, because I have been taken to that event since I was a baby. The years up to 16, I ran the event every time it was arranged. After that, I have participated when it has matched with my seasonplanning.

What is your best result at NV-galoppen?

I won W21AL in 2002.

What is your best memory from NV-galoppen?

It has to be the year when we had a large group of Finnish runners at our home. The weather was nice, lots of competitors, real western-terrain and good courses!

Why should orienteerers participate at NV-galoppen?

Because it’s amazing nature – both in the courses and amongst them. Demanding and interesting terrain, besides Voss is branding, and has a lot of athlets on high level. (Kristen Skjeldal, a former olympic champion in cross country skiing, will take part in the competition), and the place can offer many exiting activities.

For the eliterunners, the terrain is also very adequat for the upcoing World Championships in Trondheim in 2010.
