Short race reportYesterday the orienteering calendar for 2007 took off with a bang 114 cards with over 130 orienteers taking to the hills in the Groenkloof Nature Reserve near Pretoria, it was a particularly hot day with temperatures reach the mid 30's C. ROC's planning & controlling team Ken Robinson and Lonnie Tiegs put together 5 courses that would appeal to all orienteering capabilities. 15 Finnish orienteers currently in South Africa doing some high altitude training made an appearance, many of them have in the past won medals at the World Orienteering Championships so it was no surprise to see them take the tops spots in both the Blue and Brown courses.
